Virginia’s long and diverse history is evident in the Commonwealth’s historic buildings, sites, and landscapes. However, far too many of these places are vulnerable to damage and demolition caused by neglect, insufficient resources, inappropriate development, and insensitive public policies.
For more than 20 years, Virginia’s Most Endangered Historic Places list has advocated for these places, and helped to find solutions for their preservation. The intent of the list is to bring attention to threatened historic places in the Commonwealth, and to encourage residents, localities, and organizations to support preservation and revitalization efforts.
