Preserve Arkansas Seeking Most Endangered Places Nominations

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, February 22, 2018

Preserve Arkansas requests the public’s help in identifying endangered historic places for the 2018 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 Monday, March 26, 2018.

The Most Endangered Places program began in 1999 to raise awareness of the importance of historic properties to the state's heritage. The listed sites reflect threats such as deterioration, neglect, insufficient funds, insensitive public policy, and inappropriate development. Preserve Arkansas will compile the 2018 list of Arkansas’s Most Endangered Places by soliciting nominations from the public, and the list will be announced in May during Arkansas Heritage Month and National Preservation Month.

Previous listings include the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home in Dyess, the William E. Woodruff House in Little Rock, Arkansas Mound Sites throughout the state, the Thompson Building in Hot Springs, African-American Rosenwald Schools, and Historic County Courthouses throughout the state.

Criteria considered for listing includes the degree of a property's local, state, or national significance; a property's eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places, and the imminence and degree of the threat to the property. Nominations are reviewed by a committee of historians, preservationists, and architects before a determination is made.

Nomination information and program guidelines may be found at Nominations, photographs, and support materials may be submitted via an online form or by email. For more information, call 501-372-4757 or email [email protected].
