Nominations for endangered Ohio sites due June 8

Lovers of Ohio's historic but endangered built environment have until June 8 to nominate their favorite sites for inclusion on Preservation Ohio's Most Endangered Historic Sites 2012 list.

The list is meant to bring public attention to significant pieces of Ohio history in danger of being lost due to human action, deterioration, or other causes.

Sites may be nominated by individuals, organizations, or local governments. Two required digital photographs, in JPG or GIF format, should be sent separately to Jennifer Gray at

Preservation Ohio produced the list on a biannual basis between 1993 and 2005, and now issues one annually. Sites remain on the list until the imminent danger is lessened.

Thirteen sites made last year's list, including the James N. Gamble House in Westwood and the Greenhills Historic District. They have been on the list for two consecutive years and for three consecutive years, respectively.
