Preservation Ohio is pleased to announce the Call for Nominations to the 2011 List of Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites.
Each year, Ohio's statewide preservation organization searches for houses, commercial buildings, governmental structures, bridges, historic roadways, landscapes, downtowns, neighborhoods and other important pieces of Ohio history that face a potentially risky future. The list serves to highlight those properties which are both historically significant and endangered -- whether it be by threats of demolition, long-term disinvestment or neglect, insensitive governmental action, uncertainty or indifference. This is not only a compendium of redevelopment opportunities -- it exists to highlight important pieces of local and state history that are threatened with loss, no matter their setting.
This year, as in years past, nominations are being solicited from individuals, organizations and communities across the state. This year, this process has been made even simpler through a new, online nomination interface, which can be accessed by clicking here; the direct link is: http://www.preserveohio.com/nomination-form. Go to http://preservationohiosite.squarespace.com/ohios-most-endangered-overview for an overview on the Most Endangered Historic Sites program, with additional links.
The List of Ohio’s Most Endangered Historic Sites has been presented since 1993 by Ohio’s statewide historic preservation organization. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions on the nomination process. To be considered timely, nominations must be received on or before April 1, 2011; announcement of this year’s list will take place at a special event during National Preservation Month in May.
