Preservation Texas invites nominations for the 2020 Most Endangered Places list. We welcome nominations from a broad spectrum of historic resources across Texas. This signature program of Preservation Texas was launched in 2004. Over the last 15 years, 161 sites and themes have been included on the list, of which only 12 have been lost. The 2019 list may be viewed here.
Nominated sites should face an imminent risk of permanent loss or inappropriate alteration. Listed sites are typically threatened by demolition, neglect, inappropriate alteration or development, and disasters. Nominated places should be of historic or cultural significance from prehistory to the recent past, including buildings, structures, landscapes and archaeological sites.
The nomination process is a two-step process. The first step is to complete the online Submission form (link below). After all Submissions are reviewed, the strongest candidates will be asked to provide more detailed information before the final 2020 Most Endangered Places List is selected and approved by the Preservation Texas Board of Directors. In some circumstances, site visits may need to be arranged as well. The 2020 list will be announced early next year.
Submissions must be made online and there is no cost to submit a nomination, however, submitters must be current members of Preservation Texas. A link to the Submission form may be found here.
Completed nominations must be submitted by Friday, November 8, 2019 at 5:00 pm CST.
