Ohio's 'Most Endangered' nominations open through April 9

Preservation Ohio has issued a call of nominations for its 2010 List of Ohio's Most Endangered Historic Sites and will accept nominations through April 9.

Nominations can be made by individuals, organizations or communities and can include buildings, neighborhoods, downtowns, communities, roads, landscapes, bridges, archaeological sites and statues.

The official list will be announced to the public at the start of National Historic Preservation Month in May.

Issued since 1993, the list highlights properties that are both historically significant and endangered, ranging from being under the threat of demolition to suffering from owner indifference.

As of 2008, properties added to the list will remain there until the threat is removed.

In 2007, the neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine was added to the list; The Greenhills Historic District was added in 2008 and remained on the 2009 list.
