The East Tennessee Preservation Alliance invites the general public to submit nominations of endangered historic places or structures to be included in the second annual “East Tennessee’s Endangered Heritage” list, which will feature locations from Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier, and Union counties. The deadline for nominations is Friday, January 7, 2011.
The East Tennessee Preservation Alliance will release its 2011 list of endangered places to educate the public and local leaders about the plight of significant historic resources across the region. Preservation strategies are developed for each site, which range from buildings to landscapes, to include working with current property owners, government officials, local citizens, and/or potential new owners to preserve these important parts of our community’s heritage.
Eligible nominations should include the following information:
- Name and/or address of the endangered property
- Nature of the threat to the property
- Name and contact information for the current property owner (if available)
- Name and contact information for the individual or group submitting the nomination
- Any known historical information about the property (year built, architect, past owners, etc.)
- Photo of property
Nominations can be sent to East Tennessee Preservation Alliance until Friday, January 7, via the following ways: by mail to East Tennessee’s Endangered Heritage, c/o Knox Heritage, P.O. Box 1242, Knoxville, TN 37901; by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by fax to 865-523-0938.
