slides: Preservation Worcester’s 2013 Most Endangered Structures

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

 

Odd Fellows Hall is just one of Worcester's buildings named Most Endangered by Preservation Worcester.

For the past nineteen years, Preservation Worcester has published an annual list of Most Endangered Structures. The List alerts the public to threats to some of the city’s most historic treasures. It garners attention to the condition of the structures and their importance to the landscape of the city, and often serves as a catalyst for restoration and preservation.

Selected properties must be at least 50 years old, have architectural, cultural or historic significance to the landscape of the city, and be threatened by neglect, demolition, alteration, neglect, or inappropriate use.

This year, the Most Endangered Structures Committee received and considered approximately 50 nominations. After careful review, 11 were selected for their 2013 Most Endangered Structures List and 16 were selected for their confidential Watch List.

See which buildings are most threatened, in the slides below.
