The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation (AAHP) has announced the state’s Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties for 2015. 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 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.
The list is the first step to participate in the AAHP Ten Most Endangered Grant Program, whichfunds hands-on preservation work on endangered properties and serves as seed money to leverage funding from other sources. Properties listed on the 2015 List are eligible to apply to AAHP for these matching grants, which are made possible through generous donations to the Grant Program from private individuals and organizations which support these preservation efforts.
Grant application for 2015 will be available on this site in September 2015. If you would like to be notified when the application form is available, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like additional information on the history of this program and past properties on the list, please contact us at email@example.com.
