FALLING HOUSE

The home at the east end of 17th Street is falling into Lake Michigan, and a crew is getting prepared to dismantle the house.

SOMERS — Equipment was moved into place Tuesday as crews started razing a home on the verge of falling into Lake Michigan.

The bank-owned property, located at 609 17th St., was scheduled to be razed on Oct. 11, but those plans were delayed due to equipment issues and inclement weather.

The three-bedroom home, previously owned by Tom and Marge Lindgren, has been in jeopardy of falling into Lake Michigan for the past 1½ years.

Storms and high lake levels have eaten away at the bluff on which the home sits. The home’s back porch fell into the lake last year.
