Security Now Placed at "Top-o-Rock" in Charleston

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- New security is in place at an iconic home in South Hills after vandals badly damaged the property.

The house is called "Top-o-Rock."

Henry Elden built the home in the late 1960's and has been a hot spot for people who want to see the unique architecture.

Just last week the home was found with graffitti throughout the property and several windows broken out. Someone also stole copper piping throughout the home.

Charleston City leaders tell the current owners have hired security guards to be at the property 24 hours, 7 days a week to make sure nothing else happens to the home.

Last week Rodney Loftis, who owns a contracting company, told the home is set to be demolished. Loftis says he hopes to know this week when the process with begin.

However, there is a Facebook group that has been formed to try and save the home.

As of Monday, the page had 1,310 members.
