2015 Places in Peril

2015 Places in Peril Announcement

Missouri Preservation’s UnHappy Hour, which announced the 2015 Places in Peril, was the place to be on Friday, July 24. More than 120 people tightly squeezed into the Carriage House at Chatillon DeMenil Mansion, located in St. Louis, Missouri, in order to hear this year’s listing.Thank you to everyone who attended the press release reception. Missouri Preservation, along with Missouri’s threatened historic resources, greatly appreciates your support.

Instituted as a media campaign in 2000, the program is aimed at calling attention to endangered statewide historic resources threatened by deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds, imminent demolition and/or inappropriate development. Formerly known as Most Endangered, this year’s UnHappy Hour celebrated the renaming of the program as ‘Places in Peril’. The re-branding came as a means of highlighting the selected public nominated places because becoming the ‘most endangered’ was not a contest. Once the historic resource is gone, it’s gone forever. By publicizing these places we hope to build support towards each property’s eventual preservation.
