Statewide Endangered

2014 Ten Most Endangered Historic Places

 

From important corner commercial buildings to a pre-Civil War marine hospital to a historic planned manufacturing district to a 19th century “fresh air in the country” camp designed by noted landscape architect Jens Jensen---the 2014 “Ten Most” list includes a remarkable variety of structures. 
  
The “Ten Most” list was announced by Landmarks Illinois at an April 1st press conference in Springfield. The event was attended by community representatives, property owners, and state legislators. The purpose of the list is to focus attention on sites threatened by deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds, or inappropriate development. By publicizing them we hope to bolster local advocacy efforts and build support towards each property’s eventual preservation.
 
Since the program’s inception in 1995, 58 sites have been saved, 45 have been demolished or substantially altered, 77 are still threatened, and 15 have a rehab pending/underway. For a detailed list of past sites, visit the “Ten Most” Archives.
