Is there an endangered historic place in your community? Consider nominating it to the Missouri’s 2012 Most Endangered Historic Places. Nominations are currently being accpeted. Follow the link bellow to make your nomination. Deadline for submitting your endangered historic property is April 16, 2012. The announcement will be made in May or June at one of the endangered properties.

Missouri Preservation’s Most Endangered Historic Places Program has been in operation for over ten years, calling attention to endangered historic resources statewide and providing support to the individual sites,  .  Our 2011 Most Endangered Historic Places  included fifteen listings representing eighteen resources.



Beginning in January 2012, our web site will have a new look, including our new logo and themes, and expanded information for you.  We will be able to update our postings much more quickly, keeping you in the know about important programs, issues and opportunities in historic preservation statewide.  There are new pages, such as the Conference tab, which contains the official program and educational offerings for our yearly educational conference, and the Field Services tab, which describes services Missouri Preservation is able to offer throughout Missouri to bring “boots on the ground” to advocate for preserving the Missouri places we cherish.  Several of our members have chosen to use the Available Properties tab this year.  One listing attracted a buyer to one of our own 2011 Most Endangered Historic Places – the Williams-Gierth (Castle) House in Poplar Bluff.  Our Public Policy Committee has been working hard to preserve Missouri’s State’s Historic Preservation Tax Credit and up-to-date information can be found on this tab.  To the right you’ll notice updated links to important historic preservation sites, both local and reference-oriented.  If there is a link that you think we should display here – or any information you think would be appropriate for our web site, please let us know by contacting Field Representative Bill Hart at mpfieldservices@yahoo.com or by calling him at (314)691-1941.  We will constantly be updaing the new web site’s content, so please continue to visit us often!
