Explore the 2013 Endangered Maryland sites
Preservation Maryland's 2013 Endangered Maryland list of threatened historic properties has been released. Featured in the April edition of Maryland Life magazine, this is the seventh annual list. There are now 74 historic sites included in the Endangered Maryland program.
Endangered Maryland's purpose is to generate public awareness of the state's threatened historic properties, generate possible solutions and serve as a call for action. A panel of historic preservationists selected the list from properties nominated by the public by assessing the level of threat, historic and architectural significance and community support for preserving the site.
