Preserve Arkansas Seeks 'Most-Endangered' Nominations

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Little Rock—Preserve Arkansas, the state’s non-profit historic preservation organization, requests the public’s help in identifying endangered historic places for the 2017 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 Friday, March 17, 2017.

The Most Endangered Places program began in 1999 to raise awareness of the importance of historic properties to the state's heritage. The sites reflect threats such as deterioration, neglect, insufficient funds, insensitive public policy, and inappropriate development. Preserve Arkansas will compile the 2017 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 White River Bridge in Clarendon, the Thompson Building in Hot Springs, African-American Rosenwald Schools, and Historic County Courthouses throughout the state.

Criteria considered for inclusion in the list of Arkansas’s Most Endangered Places 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.

The public is invited to participate in the Most Endangered Places program by nominating properties to Preserve Arkansas’s 2017 list. Nomination information and program guidelines may be found at The property nomination information, photographs, and support materials may be submitted via an online form or email.
