The OES visited the Swisher Brick House on April 10, 2004. Just outside of Groveport, this house built in the early 1800s was in horrible condition on our visit. In fact, it was in such horrible condition that we did not come within ten feet of its walls for fear of collapse. Some of the exterior wall had already fallen on one side of the home, along with the roof and the floors of some of the rooms. The house looked very much like an ancient ruin standing in the growth of trees that surrounded it. According to Mr. Graham, the owner of the property, the home has been vacant for years, but it was a beautiful home in its day. A feature we noticed was an outdoor fireplace, likely used for cooking during the warm summer months. Some furniture was left in the home and a great deal of debris was scattered about the area around the home. One thing in particular that we found was an old Bayer Aspirin bottle that dated somewhere between 1930 to 1950. There ware a couple of old rusted-out tractors just behind the home, along with some old out-buildings that appeared to be no longer used. It would not be surprising of the house will be gone soon, either by demolition or collapse.
