Former Lawrence Co. nursing home stripped of its copper
NEW CASTLE, Pa. — Vandals have stripped Lawrence County’s former nursing home of all of its copper wiring and pipes.
Greg Triko, who now owns the former Hill View Manor Nursing Home, said he got a call last week from a neighbor about some broken windows at the Shenango Township facility.
He sent someone to check it out and found most of the wiring and pipes in the building gone.
The building has been vacant since county commissioners closed it nearly four years ago and sold it at auction to Triko Enterprises. Triko of McKees Rocks, Pa., said he has been working on leasing options for the large building located on Pa. Route 65, but the building has been vacant.
