Demolition St. Louis County

Clayton Tear Down

by Michael R. Allen

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 dates to 1958 and was designed by Ralph Fournier.
