The Arizona Preservation Foundation is now accepting nominations for our 2007 Most Endangered Historic Places list. Compiled by preservation professionals and historians, the list identifies critically endangered properties of major historical or archaeological significance to the state. Properties selected for the Most Endangered Historic Places list will receive the Foundation’s assistance in developing support to remove the threat. The list will be announced at a press conference during the 5th Annual Arizona Statewide Historic Preservation Conference, June 15-18, 2007 in Prescott, AZ.

To apply, email to receive a nomination form (Microsoft Word file) and submit one hard or digital copy on disk or via email of the completed form with all supporting materials to: Arizona Preservation Foundation, P.O. Box 13492, Phoenix, AZ 85002 or Completed nominations must be received electronically or postmarked by May 23, 2007. A separate application form must be submitted for each nominated property. Selections will be made based on their significance as determined by the Foundation.

To be considered for our 2007 list, there must be a degree of endangerment by owner neglect, proposed demolition, rezoning, redevelopment, or other human or environmental factors. Additionally, the property must be listed on or be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, our state historic register, or a local register.
