2014 Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties
The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation (AAHP) is accepting nominations for Alaska's Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties for 2014. The list of properties is announced each May, in conjunction with National Historic Preservation Week.
This program is intended to bring public awareness of Alaska's threatened historic properties. Heightened awareness often leads to increased support for the conservation of endangered historic properties, which are assets important to tourism, economic development, and the cultural heritage of Alaska. AAHP has been identifying the Most Endangered Historic Properties annually since 1991.
The Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties program calls attention to threatened properties that define our great state, the people that live here and the identify that we share. The nominations for this program are submitted by individuals and organizations living throughout Alaska.
