Clay Tiles at Risk - 2320 Palmyra

Submitted photo of 2320 Palmyra

If this Mediterranean Revival shotgun house in the VA Footprint is moved...and the roof must be taken off, as it has on the houses moved thus far...what will become of the hundreds of clay tiles?

It would be quite a waste to see them go to the landfill.

A friend pointed out this issue today.  Unfortunately, I don't believe tiles are listed under the salvage agreement, and I don't have any evidence that they will be re-used on the house as it's rehabilitated in a new location elsewhere in the city.  Thus, it seems important to find an outside party to remove the tiles at this point.
