Top Ten Endangered

2015 Top Ten and Worst Losses Lists Released!

 
 

The Top Ten Endangered Places List is released annually to bring national attention to sites at risk due to neglect, lack of funding, inappropriate development and weak legislation. From unique 19th-century landmarks to simple vernacular housing, stone railway stations to Modernist airports, heritage districts to single buildings, the list has become a powerful tool in the fight to make landmarks, not landfill.

The National Trust uses three primary criteria to determine the 10 final sites for inclusion on the list:
•    Significance of the site
•    Urgency of the threat/potential for a positive and creative solution
•    Evidence of active community support on the ground for its preservation

Help us turn the tide for heritage places at risk BEFORE they make the Top 10 Endangered List!
