The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation hosts a press event on Wednesday, June 2, 2010 to announce its annual Most Endangered Historic Properties List.

WHEN: June 2, 2010 at 11:00 am
WHERE: Lower Commons Park in the city of Sammamish, 550 222nd Pl. SE
(the press event will be at the back end of the parking lot)

Since initiating its Most Endangered Historic Properties List in 1992, the Washington Trust has identified over 100 historically significant resources experiencing a wide range of pressures. Inclusion in the list annual list is intended to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing historic resources across the state and to encourage collaboration with all stakeholders to develop preservation strategies. In numerous instances, Most Endangered status has worked to facilitate solutions that promote the historic significance of sites while retaining important resources as viable, functional components of our neighborhoods and communities.

Eight resources are highlighted in the 2010 list. The event is open to the public. Meet representatives from the endangered sites. MAin2 will be there and will report back on the list!
