Nonprofit Heritage Trust is scouring Burlington, IA, to salvage tin ceilings and other architectural artifacts before historic buildings are razed.
"Volunteers are trying to salvage valuable items from historic buildings that are being demolished in downtown Burlington to make way for a business expansion.... In some of the buildings, volunteers of the nonprofit Heritage Trust tore down a drop ceiling to expose the original tin ceilings. They also were seeking to save wooden support columns and window fixtures." -- KTTC.com
