Anchorage, Alaska (June 26, 2012) – The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation (AAHP) announces the state’s Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties for 2012. The list is announced each year and is intended to bring public awareness to Alaska’s threatened historic properties. Heightened awareness often leads to increased support for the conservation of endangered historic properties, which are assets important to tourism, economic development, and the cultural heritage of Alaska. AAHP has been identifying the Most Endangered Historic Properties since 1991.
The Ten Most Endangered Grant Program funds hands-on preservation work on endangered properties and serves as seed money to leverage funding from other sources. The program calls attention to threatened properties that define our great state, the people that live here and the identity that we share. The nominations for this program are submitted by individuals and organizations throughout Alaska.
Founded in 1981 as a private, nonprofit corporation, AAHP is dedicated to the preservation of Alaska’s prehistoric and historic heritage as manifested in its buildings and sites. AAHP aids in historic preservation projects across Alaska and monitors and supports legislation to promote historic preservation, serving as a liaison between local, statewide, and national historic preservation groups. Additionally, AAHP publishes a quarterly newsletter and holds educational workshops.
To donate to the Grant Program or learn more about AAHP, please contact Allegra Hamer (929-9870) at AAHP or visit our website www.aahp-online.net.
