2008 Ten Most Endangered Sites in Illinois Announced

This year’s list of threatened sites, which was announced at an April 2nd press conference at the State Capitol in Springfield, represents a cross section of Illinois’ historic resources. Five of the listings date to the 1800s. They include a site along the Underground Railroad, a parochial school constructed by Civil War veterans, early examples of American skyscrapers, the historic epicenter of Chicago’s German-American community, and a library commissioned by a relative of presidents John and John Quincy Adams.

The other half of the list dates from the 20th century and includes: an early metal truss bridge, Chicago’s first riverfront plaza, a Dutch windmill in Central Illinois, a Mid-Century modern building designed for the Navy, a 60’s arena and a “friendly confine”. 

The purpose of the “Ten Most” list is to focus attention on sites threatened by deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds, or inappropriate development. Since the program’s inception in 1995 132 properties have been identified on the endangered list, calling attention to statewide resources in need of preservation.
