Back from the Brink: Celebrating 25 Years of Saving America’s Most Endangered Historic Places

25 Years of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

Since 1988, the National Trust's list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places has identified 234 of our country's greatest cultural and architectural treasures, all of which faced specific and immediate threats. To date, only a handful have been lost. Join us as we celebrate this milestone by looking back at a quarter-century of inspiring preservation stories.
