Call for Nominations — Deadline today, May 24th
The Top Ten Endangered Places List is released annually to bring national attention to sites at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. From unique 19th-century landmarks to simple vernacular housing, stone railway stations to Modernist airports, heritage districts to single buildings, the list has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.
HCF uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:
• Significance of the site
• Urgency of the threat
• Community support for its preservation
If you know a site that should be included on our list, tell us about it today.
Along with our annual Top Ten list, HCF draws attention to heritage sites already lost – don’t miss our Worst Losses list.
