Little Rock—Preserve Arkansas requests the public’s help in identifying endangered historic places that reflect our Arkansas heritage for the 2016 Most Endangered Places List.
The Most Endangered Places list highlights historically and architecturally significant properties throughout the state that are worthy of preservation.
Preserve Arkansas is soliciting nominations from residents and organizations across Arkansas of buildings, structures, sites and other places to
be considered for inclusion in the list. The nomination deadline
is Thursday, March 17, 2016.
The Most Endangered Places program began in 1999 to raise awareness of the importance of historic properties to the state's heritage. The sites reflect threats such as deterioration, neglect, insufficient funds, insensitive public policy and inappropriate development. Preserve Arkansas will compile the 2015 list of Arkansas’s Most Endangered Places from nominations by the public and the list will be announced in May during Arkansas Heritage Month and National Preservation Month.
Previous places listed include the Johnny Cash Family Home in Dyess, the William E. Woodruff House in Little Rock, Arkansas Mound Sites throughout the state, the White River Bridge in Clarendon, the Thompson Building in Hot Springs, African-American Rosenwald Schools and Historic County Courthouses
throughout the state.
Criteria considered for inclusion in the list of Arkansas’s Most Endangered Places includes the degree of a property's local, state, or national significance;
a property's eligibility for the National or Arkansas Register of Historic Places and the imminence and degree of the threat to the property.
The public is invited to participate in the Most Endangered Places program by nominating properties to Preserve Arkansas’s 2016 list. Nomination information
and program guidelines can be found on PreserveArkansas.org. The property nomination information, photographs and support materials can be submitted via an online form or email. For questions or more information call 501-372-4757, or email email@example.com.
