At 10:00 am PDT on Tuesday April 28, 2009, National Trust President Richard Moe and Academy Award-winning actress, Diane Keaton announced the 2009 list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places® at a press conference in Los Angeles, California.

Since 1988, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has used its list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places as a powerful alarm to raise awareness of the serious threats facing our nation’s greatest treasures. It has become one of the most effective tools in the fight to save the country’s irreplaceable architectural, cultural, and natural heritage.

“The 22nd annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places reflects the extraordinary diversity and fragility of our shared heritage,” said Richard Moe. “These 11 sites highlight many critical issues, including the importance of preserving architectural icons of the recent past and preservation as one of the most effective forms of sustainable development. Places like these help tell all of our stories, and losing them not only erases a piece of our heritage, it also represents a threat to our planet.”

The list includes the Century Plaza Hotel, which Diane Keaton, a Los Angeles area preservation activist and National Trust Board Member, has been fighting to save. “All over Los Angeles, too many of our great modern buildings have already fallen to the wrecking ball," said Keaton.  "We need to lead by example and show the rest of the country that buildings are renewable, and we shouldn't be throwing them away. We should be recycling them just like we recycle newspapers.”

Also on the 2009 List:

  • Miami Marine Stadium, FL
  • Mount Taylor, Grants, NM
  • Unity Temple, Oak Park, IL
  • Dorchester Academy, Midway, GA
  • The Manhattan Project's Enola Gay Hangar at Wendover Airfield, UT
  • Ames Shovel Shops, Easton, MA
  • Human Services Center, Yankton, SD
  • Memorial Bridge, Portsmouth, NH & Kittery, ME
  • Cast-Iron Architecture of Galveston, TX
  • Lana’i City, Maui, HI
