Crisfield Abandoned Home to be Demolished

Posted: Updated:
CRISFIELD, Md.- An abandoned home on Cove Street has put a blemish on the city of Crisfield.

The home in Somers Cove burned down in October of 2013 and its owners abandoned it.

Crisfield purchased the home this spring in a tax sale.

Mayor Kimberly Lawson said he thinks the economy is causing many people to walk away from their homes. He's just trying to figure out why it's happening so much in Crisfield.

"That would probably be something that would reflect on the national economy. People have walked away from homes all over this country," Lawson said.

The mayor suspects the lot will be worth very little once the home is gone. The city has not yet set a date to demolish the home.
