CINCINNATI (AP) - A Cincinnati zoning board of appeals has affirmed the city's decision that a 19th century mansion once owned by a Procter & Gamble heir may not be torn down.

Board members voted unanimously Monday to uphold the city's decision to refuse to issue a demolition permit to level the historic home.

The Greenacres Foundation, which owns the former James Norris Gamble house, had filed a lawsuit as it looked for approval to level the home. The group says restoring and maintaining the property is too pricey.

Gamble was the son of one of co-founders of consumer product giant Procter & Gamble. He lived in the home from 1875 to 1932.
