Clayton Tear Down

A CraigsList ad offers for sale parts of a "large house in [C]layton to be demolished." It's a remove-yourself sale at 57 Broadview in Clayon's Clavarach Park neighborhood, recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district. Clayton lacks a historic preservation ordinance. According to Esley Hamilton, Historian at the St. Louis County Department of Parks and Recreation, the house dtaes to 1958 and was designed by Ralph Fournier.

Not cool, that is an historic neighborhood.

Yeah no kidding. How would the residents of Clavarach Park even allow this?

Called the number and the guy answering said the "first" sale was last wknd. He said that another one--presumably to parse out the windows, doors, and gutters, etc. would come later. I will eventually get around to redoing the addition on our house, so some of those windows--casing, sashes, weights, etc.--could come in handy.
