 About Preservation Texas & the Annual Most Endangered Places List 

Preservation Texas is a nonprofit organization that empowers Texans to preserve their cultural heritage, and stewards significant buildings, collections, and cultural landscapes to ensure their permanent protection.  The annual Most Endangered Places (MEP) list is a signature program of Preservation Texas, which has spotlighted imperiled historic places across Texas since 2004. The MEP list is designed to draw statewide attention to Endangered Places so that local advocates can build momentum toward their protection. Preservation Texas can also provide technical assistance and letters of support for sites that have been included on the list.  Every year, Preservation Texas invites its members to nominate historic places that are important to them and that are threatened by neglect, impending demolition, inappropriate alteration, or a radical loss of context. The final list is approved by Preservation Texas' volunteer Board of Directors.
