The Kentucky Trust has created a new program that will expand its efforts to find and save Endangered Historic Buildings.  The program involves an effort to re-survey the buildings already listed in the National Register in order to determine if there are neglected buildings which would benefit from intervention by the Trust.  Depending on the building’s location and condition and the owner’s concern, the Trust will suggest a range of approaches to the owner which might bring about the preservation of the property.

Stabilization is one option.  This involves the Trust in organizing a weekend work effort that will patch old roofs and board up windows and doors which are open to the elements and vandals.  The goal is to buy time for the building until the owner decides to make more extensive changes or decides to sell the property to preservation minded people.  The Trust will also provide restoration design ideas to owners and discourage remodeling approaches which might compromise the integrity of the building.  Where possible, the Trust offers to find a buyer for historic properties that would benefit from a new owner and the ongoing advice from the Trust resulting from the Trust holding a historic preservation deed covenant on the property.

Our first county-wide resurvey was carried out by Will Updike, a student in the University of Kentucky’s Historic Preservation Masters program.  Updike visited over 70 individually listed National Register properties.  Follow-up meetings have been held with three property owners including the City of Richmond, which has agreed to refurbish the historic Mt. Pleasant House.

Kentucky Trust member Cora Spiller has taken on the task of gathering information about National Register listed buildings in Warren County and Barren County.  She has made some site visits and numerous telephone calls to owners to gather the information that is needed.  The Trust welcomes inquiries about any of these ongoing projects and from individuals and groups that want to start a resurvey effort in their communities.
