Question regarding Ellis Feiman House

Post by Modmom1 »

Hope this finds all in good health. I have a question regarding the the Ellis Feiman House in Canton Ohio.

I belong to an Abandoned Homes, Buildings and Structures of Ohio FB group and today photographs of the FLW Ellis Feiman House appeared on this site. Is this house abandoned? It doesn't appear that there is ongoing work being done on the building and the photographers thought it had been vacant for years. Does anyone know what is going on with this house?

Not sure, Modmom . . . but for some history, and a clue to the current situation perhaps, there's this discussion, beginning 12 years ago:

And, quite by coincidence, there's this recent thread as well:

Thanks, SDR. I thought I recalled reading about this house. My intent in a new post was in hopes that the owner would be made aware of the photos posted in this abandoned building group. There were quickly over 200 responses and several tags. Having witnessed the damage that trespassing can do with Glenbrow, I was hoping the owner would step in and make sure to put a stop to it. I would suspect there will be many pilgrimages to the site in the next couple weeks. I would hate to see intruders take parts of this lovely home.

ModMom:

Would you be able to post a link to the website? Or, post any recent photos? Feiman has been of concern for many years, at this point.

David, It's a private group with 10,000+ members. There are now 284 likes and 42 comments (many saying they plan to visit). The street location in Canton is given. The person taking the photos said there was no one living there. Here is a link to the group-It doesn't allow the sharing of photos (all are exterior photos):

Ok. Thanks, Dorri. I'm not a FB member. I'll be interested to hear what folks think after they see it on person.

Unless it has changed hands since the earlier posts, the owner lives far away from Feiman, I believe North Carolina? The future of the house looks grim unless it can be transferred to a sympathetic, rich, new owner.
