DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio building constructed around the first Wright brothers' bicycle shop has been declared a public nuisance and may eventually be demolished, despite a resident's effort to preserve the site.
A city planner says three walls of the shop stand inside the former Gem City Ice Cream building in Dayton.
The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/ybhWxP ) reports the Wright brothers ran the shop in the late 1800s, before their pioneering flight.
An assistant city manager says the structure didn't have enough "historic integrity" to be declared a Wright site but was included on the National Register of Historic Places as part of a larger historic district.
Resident Michael Perkins is fighting to preserve the building, but the city says it hasn't been able to find a developer to fund the redevelopment.
