Florida Trust Most Endangered List Nominations

Florida Trust for Historic Preservation

Each year, the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation announces Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites as part of the Annual Statewide Preservation Conference. The Most Endangered Historic Sites program is designed to increase the public’s awareness of the urgent need to save Florida’s neglected or threatened historic resources. We do that to empower local preservationists and preservation groups in their efforts to preserve Florida’s rich history.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the 2015 Most Endangered Historic Sites in Florida is February 28, 2015.

The 2015 Eleven Most Endangered Sites will be announced on May 7, 2015, at the Opening Session of the Florida Trust’s 37th Anniversary Conference in Miami, Florida.
