WASHINGTON TRUST ANNOUNCES 2011 LIST OF ENDANGERED HISTORIC RESOURCES

The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is pleased to host a press event on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. to announce its annual list of the state’s Most Endangered Historic Properties. The press event will be held at Fireman’s Park, located at the intersection of S 7th Street and Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma.

Directions and parking information for the press event can be found below.

Since initiating its Most Endangered Historic Properties List in 1992, the Washington Trust has identified over 100 historically significant resources experiencing a wide range of pressures. Inclusion in our annual list is intended to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing historic resources across the state and to encourage collaboration with all stakeholders to develop preservation strategies. In numerous instances, Most Endangered status has worked to facilitate solutions that promote the historic significance of sites while retaining important resources as viable, functional components of our neighborhoods and communities. Five historic resources are highlighted in the 2011 List.

The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, a nonprofit organization, promotes the preservation of historic places in Washington State through advocacy, education, collaboration, and stewardship. Founded in 1976, the Washington Trust addresses its mission through the annual Most Endangered Historic Properties List, educational tours of its landmark headquarters, the Stimson-Green Mansion in Seattle, conferences and training workshops, a quarterly members’ newsletter, a small grants fund, and action on legislation and public policy.
