Razing of historic structures begins in Seneca County
A plan to demolish five cottages included in a National Register of Historic Places district has been halted as state officials weigh whether proper channels for razing were followed. They will consult with the Ohio Historic Preservation Office. The delay comes after firefighters used one of the cottages, located on a state-owned former orphanage campus in Tiffin, for training exercises last week. The practice drills on Friday created a gaping hole in the structure’s roof and burned its interior.
