Preservation Iowa Announces 2017 “Most Endangered Properties”

Preservation Iowa has designated 9 properties for 2017 Most Endangered Designations.

Here are the 2017 Most Endangered Properties:

Preservation Iowa’s Most Endangered Property program was started in 1995 and was implemented to educate Iowans about the special buildings and historic sites that are slowly and gradually slipping away from us. In the past 20 years, Preservation Iowa has designated over 140 archeological sites, churches, landscapes and a variety of other buildings.

The Most Endangered Properties program provides an excellent resource for media coverage and introduces owners of an endangered property to preservation advocacy and resources that can help preserve their historic property. Additionally, there have been interest groups who have been able to use the designation as a mechanism to leverage other financial resources to restore and preserve properties.
