America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

The 2015 “11 Most” list shines a spotlight on threatened historic places that help to tell the story of our nation in all its diversity. These places include:
The Grand Canyon, one of America’s most iconic and sacred sites, is now under siege from proposed commercial developments and mining activity;
The A. G. Gaston Motel in Birmingham, which once served as a ‘war room’ for Martin Luther King, Jr. and other Civil Rights leaders, is struggling with vacancy and deterioration;
Miami’s Little Havana, a symbol of the American melting pot for generations of Cuban Americans, is threatened by zoning changes that could forever alter its historic neighborhood character; and
The Factory in West Hollywood, a disco that was an important place for gay men to proudly and openly celebrate their identity, is now threatened with demolition to make way for a new development.

See the complete list of sites and find out how you can take action to save them.
