Demo Update: Aaron Root House & the House at 32990 Lake Road

You can't see the Root House for the trees in this shot from Thursday night
The nice weather lately means that the bulldozers have been busy.

There's been lots of activity in the last few days around the old Captain Aaron Root house at Abbe Rd. and Colorado Avenue. Large trees are being uprooted, and excavation is taking place (below).

I grabbed this shot over my shoulder on Thursday morning
It's just a matter of time before the Root house comes tumbling down.

And out on Route 6 in Avon Lake, the old house behind the black iron gates was finally demolished (below).

It will be interesting to see if the vintage fence is retained to protect whatever eventually goes in there. I kind of hope it is.

I hate to see big old trees come down, no one ever replaces trees.

As for the iron fence and gate, you should get that before its scrapped!

People pay good money for those, clean them up and reuse them.

I left some comments on the Lorain UFO page and mentioned the Kecksburg incedent.

Then today I see its on TV again on WUAB at 3pm, if you get this in time?

I just posted at 2:56pm, but it shows up and says I posted at "June 8, 2014 at 11:53 AM"

How can that be?

We were able to salvage and acquire some of the hand hewn beams from the Capt. Root house recently, along with the items we saved from the day in April we all gathered at the house.
