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

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

The other day my community wanted to tear down one of those mini malls in my area. It has a donut shop, a jewelry store and a shoe store. They wanted to put a park in, so some of us local merchants chained ourselves to the doors of the stores and got an injunction. We're hoping someone will donate enough money to save our mini-mall, but until then we'll keep fighting them in court.

dave: we definitely should preserve historic things in this country -- if we don't the entire place will end up looking like a giant walmart. ugh! you'd be surprised how many people would love to bulldoze historic neighborhoods and buildings to build new, fancy shopping malls. these things need to be protected!

God point Dave, but I really think historical things need to be preserved. I guess it all depends on how much $$ goes into it and what isn't being taken care of in the process. However when someone donates to it then it doesn't matter.

Yeah I agree about the Cali parks! There was a posting around here a bit ago about that. I meant to ask about if California has a lottery? Colorados lottery pays for our parks.

I understand the need to save some of these places, like the park system in CA, but do we need to stand in the way of progress for all these places? I acknowledge the historical significance, but let's not spend our lives looking back. That's what has gotten us into trouble the last 8 years. Everyone has been looking back to the 90's when life was so good (supposedly).

Yeah it is St. Brigid's, I believe it was built by Irish immigrants. It breaks my heart seeing the character of New York disappearing.

My mother in law lives in the Lower East Side (Delancey St. area) and the area is practically transforming overnight! Yes Cine, the $20 million donation to the church was absolutely moving. If I'm not mistaken, I think the church is St. Brigid's in Alphabet City.

I think a couple of days ago a church on the Lower East Side of NYC was saved from being torn down, by an anonymous donor. He donated $20 million, to the Church, when I read the story I nearly cried.
