Rockford house demolition
Photo by Janie Southard/The Daily Standard

Shinn Brothers, Celina, were on the job Monday in Rockford tearing down the old Doris Yocum residence, which has not been inhabited in more than 30 years. Demolishing a local house was necessary for points toward the $400,000 neighborhood revitalization grant the village received this year. Owner Darrin Dellinger of Dayton donated the house, but retains the property that will be cleared as greenspace.
