Texas Most Endangered Historic Sites - 2010

Preservation Texas has been running up annual lists for several years on endangered historic sites.  Sites are announced in February, Preservation Month.  If you'd like to nominate a site, the basic criteria includes:
  • Significance — the site must be of architectural, artistic and/or historic importance within the cultural or social history of Texas
  • Urgency of threat — the need for immediate action to stop or reverse serious threats; Threats can be demolition, alterations that would change the integrity of the building or structure; significant loss of historic fabric through neglect, or through a new development plans or transportation plans that could affect the site in the future
  • Potential solutions and support — there must be clear evidence of local support for the preservation of the site
