Lima is typical of many Midwestern cities in that it has struggled through recent decades and seen declines in many areas. Though the city was once a major hub for manufacturing neon signs, automotive parts and steam locomotives, these areas are no longer as prominent as they once were.

Many of these homes are older, though. The median home age here is 60 years.
