Cleveland City Councilman Brian Cummins went door to door to spread the good news to residents of Seymour Avenue.
"Particularly with the residents here the faster this house came down the better," said Cummins.
For residents it's an eyesore and people from all over the country have come here. Crystal Gomez is from California as she and her family drove by, "it's making our stomachs turn and it's just an uneasy feeling," she said.
Just imagine being the son of the monster who lived here.
Anthony Castro was in the home Monday, retrieving family mementos. He wants nothing to do with his father.
"It's horrifying," he said. "What scum does that to his children. I heard him say he drove right past my sister to get to Gina and it's really heartbreaking."
Heartbreaking for the women who endured the torture.
Michelle Knight has been back to this neighborhood, thanking neighbors for their help.
Castro's next door neighbor didn't see her during her decade of hell and won't be home when the ball comes crashing down.
While the history of what happened inside will be forever with Michelle, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, the history of this home on Seymour avenue will be no more after Wednesday.
In the meantime, there was more activity at the house on Seymour Avenue, Monday morning.
Castro's defense attorney, Craig Weintraub, helped load a bass fiddle into the back of a car. Castro's family was also able to get inside the house on Monday to take any items they may want.
Several officers are also on the scene.
As part of Castro's plea agreement, the Seymour Avenue house is to be torn down.
Castro was sentenced to life in prison, plus 1,000 years, for kidnapping and sexually assaulting Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus while holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue house for more than a decade.
