MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An old mansion was torn down Wednesday in Minneapolis, but only after police were called in.
The house on Park Avenue, near Franklin, was called a crack house by some neighbors.
But Nicole Curtis, host of the cable TV show Rehab Addict, said the mansion, built in 1880, should have been saved.
Police were called when she tried to stop the demolition.
“It’s so magnificent,” she said. “The interior is just as beautiful — five fireplaces, hardwood floors, pocket doors, and a library that even some homes on Summit Avenue can’t even compare to.”
Curtis also said the city should not have allowed the demolition without neighborhood hearings.
