Have a preservation emergency in your community?

The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is seeking nominations to its 2018 list of Most Endangered Places. Nominations should be submitted by January 12 and may be submitted online. While we accept nominations all year round, nomination on or before Friday, January 12, 2018 is required for guaranteed inclusion in the official video announcement for 2018.

Historic resources face a variety of challenges including lack of funding, deferred maintenance and neglect, incompatible development, and demolition. Our list of Most Endangered Places brings much-needed attention to historic resources under threat while we work with all stakeholders to find positive solutions that prioritize preservation and reuse. Through this program, the Washington Trust partners with local communities in developing strategies to remove the threat and generate local and statewide support for preservation.

Nomination Process: Nominations are reviewed based on the significance of the historic resource, the level of endangerment or immediate threat, and demonstrated community support for preservation and partnership with the Washington Trust. The final list is selected by our Board of Directors and announced through a video presentation at our annual fundraiser, Vintage Washington.

Those interested in nominating a histroric resource are strongly encouraged to contact us prior to submitting a nomination. More info can be found here. Be sure to nominate your historic place by Friday, January 12, 2018 to be included in the official announcement!
