At-Risk Historic Buildings

About At-Risk Historic Buildings

The historic structures on this page are, in a sense, on their death beds. They are in dire need of immediate repair and maintenance for their preservation.

In spite of code enforcement efforts under way, these structures are deteriorating due to:

  • neglect
  • lack of maintenance, and/or
  • abandonment

This list is to encourage immediate repair of the properties and to alert the public of the decline of historic resources before they are lost forever.

This list represents a portion of the vacant and deteriorating historic structures in the City. It is not all-inclusive and is subject to change, but it represents the most critical cases.

What Can Be Done

The City of Cincinnati does not own these buildings. To find out what can be done to save them, you can contact the Cincinnati Preservation Association at 513-721-4506 for resources and information.

About Historic Conservation

The historic conservation regulations of the City promote the conservation, development and use of Historic Landmarks or Districts and their special historic, architectural, community or aesthetic interest or value. Insofar as practicable, the conservation guidelines promote redevelopment of historic structures and compatible new development within the Historic Districts.
