INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana Landmarks has released its annual list of the 10 Most Endangered places in the state. The nonprofit preservation organization says places on the list often face a combination of problems, such as abandonment, neglect and dilapidation.

Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks, says the list features important historic places that are in danger of being demolished or deteriorating away. Since 1991, 85 locations from the 139 Most Endangered sites have been completely restored or no longer endangered.

“Indiana Landmarks uses its 10 Most Endangered list in several ways. Sometimes it serves an educational role. It functions as an advocacy tool. And it can assist in raising funds needed to save a place,” says Marsh Davis, president of the nonprofit preservation organization. “Every listing comes with significant challenges. In all cases, when an endangered place lands on our list, we commit to seeking solutions that lead to rescue and revitalization,” he adds. 

The 2019 10 Most Endangered list includes:

  • Church of the Holy Cross, Indianapolis
  • Downtown Attica
  • Mineral Springs Hotel, Paoli 
  • Pulaski County Courthouse, Winamac
  • John Howe Mansion
  • Peru Circus Winter Quarters, Peru
  • Crump Theatre, Columbus
  • Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church, Richmond
  • Cannelton Historic District
  • Commandant’s Row, West Lafayette
