We live in a city rich with historically significant homes and buildings. But all too often, they see the wrecking ball instead of preservation and protection.
With so many of our Dallas historic structures having uncertain futures, Preservation Dallas creates an annual Most Endangered Historic Paces List to call the public’s attention to sites that are too meaningful for us to lose.
“We stared the list in 2004 and ran it until 2010, skipping 2009—we then brought it back in 2015,” said David Preziosi, executive director at Preservation Dallas. “The purpose is to raise awareness about the threats many of our historic places are facing. The nominations are collected and a jury reviews them and selects the new list for 2016.”
Nominations are due soon for that 2016 list, which will likely feature some of the homes and buildings we know and love.
