Florida Trust for Historic Preservation Invites Nominations for 2011 Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -

The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is accepting nominations for the 2011 Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites list, which will be announced at the 2011 Annual Statewide Preservation Conference.

“The Most Endangered Historic Sites program is designed to increase awareness of the urgent need to save Florida’s neglected or threatened historic resources,” said Mathias Bergendahl, Executive Director. “The announcement of Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites helps bring attention to threats against significant historic sites and raises public support to rescue historic landmarks,” he added.

“When the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation listed the Dr. Henry Nehrling Palm Cottage Gardens as one of Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites in 2008 and 2009 it provided a greatly increased level of recognition and credibility in the eyes of the general public,” said Angela Withers, Development Director for the Henry Nehrling Society. “We believe it contributed significantly to our success in raising sufficient backing to purchase the property in November 2009,” she added.

The 2010 Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites included Bonnet House, Ft. Lauderdale; Royal Poinciana Playhouse and Plaza, Town of Palm Beach; Central Christian Church, Orlando; Hialeah Park Race Course, Hialeah; Coconut Grove Playhouse, Coconut Grove; Sanford Grammar School, Sanford; Fort Zachary Taylor, Key West; Boynton High School/Mangrove Park School, Boynton Beach; Miami Marine Stadium, Biscayne Bay; Milton Historic District, Milton; and Bob White Citrus Packing House & Strawn Sawmill National Register Historic Districts, DeLeon Springs.

Nominations must be received by January 31, 2011. Application information and form may be found at http://www.floridatrust.org/mostendangeredhistoricsites.

Founded in 1978, the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation promotes the preservation of the architectural, historical and archaeological heritage of Florida through advocacy, education and stewardship of historic properties.
