DC Preservation League (DCPL) recently announced it 2014 list of Most Endangered Places. Since 1996, DCPL has announced annually a list of Most Endangered Places to draw attention to Washington, DC’s historically, culturally and architecturally significant places that may be threatened by alteration, demolition through neglect or abandonment. DCPL solicits nominations for its Most Endangered Places list from individuals and organizations throughout the district. DCPL’s landmarks committee then evaluates the nominations and advises the Board of Trustees on their inclusion on the list. Task forces are then created to raise awareness and develop possible preservation solutions for the endangered resources.
DCPL was founded as “Don’t Tear It Down” in 1971 to prevent the demolition of historic buildings in Washington’s downtown. The mission of the DC Preservation League is to preserve, protect, and enhance the historic and built environment of Washington, D.C., through advocacy and education.
