The Eagles Building in Lorain, Ohio – A favorite historic building crumbling due to lack of restoration work.

A visit to my hometown of Lorain, Ohio on February 5th, 2019 brought an unanticipated scene – part of Broadway being cordoned off due to some loose structural pieces of the Eagles Building that had broken off near the top of the building and crashed down to the street and alley; thus alerting those in the area that there was a potentially serious problem.
