Today's post is different. Instead of being about homes going up, it's about one coming down.
Way back in December 2010 (here), I wrote about some properties for sale along Colorado Avenue just east of Miller Road. They were former farms with old houses on them, and I mused about their eventual demolition.
One of the handsome old farm houses – at 39308 Colorado Avenue (below) – caught my eye. The Lorain County Auditor website has it listed as constructed in 1900, which means that it was built before that.
In late April, I noticed that the house was sadly looking worse than ever (below).

I was going to post the above photo as part of an update, but decided to wait another weekend so I could take a better photograph. So last Sunday, I went back to grab one more shot. That's when I saw the heavy equipment adjacent to the house (below).

The house came down the very next day.
So it's goodbye to another old Lorain County farmhouse, and all of the history and memories contained within its walls.
