Owner: Anthony Henderson
Year Built: 1875
Comments: Most of the buildings on this street, which runs roughly parallel to Central Parkway, have seen better days
The Cincinnati Department of Buildings and Inspections agrees. An inspector issued a notice March 12 asking owner Anthony Henderson of West Chester to make sure the building was kept weather-tight and vacant. The department has issued no fines yet.
Attempts to reach Henderson for comment were unsuccessful. Henderson bought the building for $20,000 in 1999 from Norman L. Miller of Amberley Village, who paid $5,000 for it in 1993, according to the Hamilton County Auditor's Office.
