The Des Moines Rehabbers Club has resurrected its annual “Most Endangered Buildings” list. Focused on highlighting significant Des Moines buildings in danger of demolition or neglect, this year’s list includes gathering places for the community, centers of entertainment, family homes that have housed important figures… these places matter. And some of them are in danger.
Members of the public were asked to nominate buildings that they felt are important to the community and are threatened with demolition or neglect. The purpose of this list is to channel resources and awareness toward those buildings and promote revitalization of older buildings. Losing these buildings to demolition or neglect would be a huge loss to local neighborhoods and to the city as a whole.
