Landmarks Illinois President & CEO Bonnie McDonald will discuss LI’s 2019 Most Endangered Historic Places in Illinois, which will be announced on May 1. The listings focus attention on sites that are threatened by deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds and in some cases the need for new ownership. Join us during Preservation Month to learn about the threats and possible solutions for some of the Chicagoland sites that made the list.
