The National Trust for Historic Preservation is accepting nominations for its annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places®. For over a quarter century, this list has highlighted important examples of the nation’s architectural, cultural and natural heritage that are at risk for destruction or irreparable damage. Nominations are due on June 15, 2016 at 11:59pm EST.
“Historic places are a tangible reminder of who we are as a nation,” said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “For over 25 years, the National Trust’s list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places has helped shine a spotlight on important and threatened historic places throughout the nation, helping not only to preserve these places, but also galvanizing local support for the preservation of other unique, irreplaceable treasures that make our nation and local communities special.”
More than 260 threatened one-of-a-kind historic treasures have been identified on the list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places since 1988. Whether these sites are beloved urban landmarks or rural landscapes, Native American cultural sites or 20th-century sports arenas, entire communities or single buildings, the list spotlights historic and endangered places across America. The designation has been a powerful tool for raising awareness and rallying resources to save endangered sites from every region of the country.
