BOND HILL, Ohio (WKRC) - Demolition has begun on a local landmark.

The Cincinnati Gardens is being torn down for new development.

It's been the site of a lot of memorable moments in Cincinnati history.

The Beatles, the Royals, the Mighty Ducks... Richard Nixon spoke to the largest crowd ever assembled in the arena during his first presidential bid in 1960.

But time and four new arenas mean the 69-year-old building is no longer a favorite for shows coming to town.
