National Trust for Historic Preservation Now Accepting Nominations for 2011 America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places® List

Washington, D.C. (November 16, 2010) – The National Trust for Historic Preservation is accepting nominations for its 2011 list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places®. This annual list highlights important examples of the nation’s architectural, cultural and natural heritage that are at risk for destruction or irreparable damage. Nominations are due on Friday, January 14, 2011. The 2011 list will be announced on Wednesday, June 15, 2011. 

“Historic places are a tangible reminder of who we are as a nation and when we lose a national treasure, we strip away part of our American story,” said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places is a wake-up call to all Americans that action must be taken to save the places that matter and the places that define us.”

More than 200 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 urban districts or rural landscapes, Native American landmarks or 20th-century sports arenas, entire communities or single buildings, the list spotlights historic places across America that are threatened by neglect, insufficient funds, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy. The designation has been a powerful tool for raising awareness and rallying resources to save endangered sites from every region of the country. At times, that attention has garnered public support to quickly rescue a treasured landmark; while in other instances, it has been the impetus of a long battle to save an important piece of our history. The list has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts across the country and rallying resources to save endangered places that, in just two decades, only seven sites have been lost.

To ensure that the most threatened sites are selected each year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation uses three primary criteria to determine the 11 places: significance, urgency, and solutions. The places on the list need not be famous; but, they must be significant within their own cultural context, illustrate important issues in preservation and have a need for immediate action to stop or reverse serious threats. All nominations are subject to an extensive, rigorous vetting process.

For additional information, e-mail 11Most@nthp.org or call 202.588.6141. To learn more about the program and to submit a nomination, visit: www.PreservationNation.org/11Most.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation (www.PreservationNation.org) is a non-profit membership organization bringing people together to protect, enhance and enjoy the places that matter to them. By saving the places where great moments from history – and the important moments of everyday life – took place, the National Trust for Historic Preservation helps revitalize neighborhoods and communities, spark economic development and promote environmental sustainability. With headquarters in Washington, DC, eight regional and field offices, 29 historic sites, and partner organizations in 50 states, territories, and the District of Columbia, the National Trust for Historic Preservation provides leadership, education, advocacy and resources to a national network of people, organizations and local communities committed to saving places, connecting us to our history and collectively shaping the future of America’s stories.
