January 9, 2020 | Apply for 2020 America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places |
The National Trust for Historic Preservation
is now accepting applications
for the 2020 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
Since 1988, the National Trust has used its list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places to raise awareness about the threats facing some of our nation's greatest treasures. The list, which has identified more than 300 sites to date
, has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts that less than five percent of these sites have been lost.
When evaluating a potential site for inclusion on the list, the National Trust considers a range of factors, including its significance, whether there is a local group engaged in its preservation, the urgency of the threat the site faces, and potential solutions to that threat. Sites with a connection to women’s history are particularly encouraged to apply this year.
If you know of an important site across the country that could benefit from the national spotlight that only the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places program can deliver, please email email@example.com.
Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, February 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST.#Blogs#Announcement
