10 Most Endangered Historic Sites in NJ announced for 2009

May 19, 2009

The Lampkin House.webThreatened by neglect, municipal indifference, incompatible development and lack of money, ten historic buildings and landscapes were named today by Preservation New Jersey to the annual 10 Most Endangered Historic Sites in New Jersey list.  Certainly, there are far more than ten historic places at risk across the state.  This annual catalogue represents hundreds or thousands more.   The list rallies support for these important character-defining landmarks that teeter on the brink of destruction.  We hope that listing them will be a catalyst for positive change and that creative solutions can be found for their preservation.

See the full list on PNJ’s website.

Just as the entire environmental community rallies when the quality of a waterway is diminished or a bird habitat threatened, preservationists must  see our battles as more than merely local problems.  We must draw attention to all our threatened historic places, the causes of those threats, and most importantly, the solutions that we know can help save them.

Donate NOW to help Preservation New Jersey find preservation solutions for these and many similar challenges.
