Indiana Landmarks today announced the 10 Most Endangered, an annual list of Hoosier landmarks in jeopardy. The list includes two churches, a hotel, a county courthouse, and more.
Places that land on the 10 Most Endangered list often face a combination of problems rather than a single threat—abandonment, neglect, dilapidation, obsolete use, unreasonable above-market asking price, owners who simply lack money for repairs, remote location.
The 10 Most Endangered in 2019 includes two sites repeating from last year’s list and eight new entries [see addendum for more information on each]:
-Cannelton Historic District, Cannelton (repeat entry from 2018 list)
-Church of the Holy Cross, Indianapolis
-Commandant’s Row at Indiana Veterans’ Home, West Lafayette (repeat entry from 2018 list)
-Crump Theatre, Columbus
-Downtown Attica
-Howe Mansion, Howe Military Academy
-Mineral Springs Hotel, Paoli
-Peru Circus Winter Quarters, Peru
-Pulaski County Courthouse, Winamac
-Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church, Richmond
Demolition has claimed only 16 of the 139 Most Endangered sites listed since 1991, while 85 places are completely restored or no longer endangered.
