Look What's on the Preservation List of 11 Endangered Places

The National Trust for Historic Preservation just released a list of 11 endangered sites chosen from almost 70 nominees. The list's goal is to protect significant buildings and locations. Of the approximately 200 places listed by the organization in the past 20 years, only six have been lost. The head of the Trust says, "The 11 represent the different kinds of historic places in different parts of the country. It's a representative list." Take a peek at where they're trying to save.

  • Boyd Theater, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • California's park system (made the list because of $1.2 billion worth of deferred maintenance.)
  • Charity Hospital and adjacent neighborhood, New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Great Falls Portage, Great Falls, Montana
  • Hangar One, Moffett Field, Santa Clara County, California
  • Lower East Side, New York (once home to immigrants and the working class in the 19th and early 20th centuries — gentrification and development threatens historic churches, theaters, schools and tenements.)
  • Michigan Avenue Streetwall, Chicago, Illinois
  • Peace Bridge Neighborhood, Buffalo, New York
  • The Statler Hilton Hotel, Dallas, Texas
  • Sumner Elementary School, Topeka, Kansas (the centerpiece of the landmark 1954 Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education.)
  • Vizcaya and the Bonnet House, Florida
