PLACES IN PERIL

Each year, the Places in Peril program calls public attention to a select number of Alabama's threatened historic and archaeological sites. Places in Peril is a listing of some of the state’s most endangered historic properties and focuses on bringing state and regional attention to these places in an effort to create meaningful solutions to the threat faced by historic buildings across Alabama, generating support for their preservation.

If there is an irreplaceable historic building or site in your area that is threatened by demolition or neglect, this is your opportunity to help save it. Each submission will be evaluated for its significance and level of threat.

The 2020 nominatin period is open from May 1 - October 1.

Please complete the form to submit your nomination.

 

Through a partnership, the Alabama Historical Commission and the Alabama Trust have created the Places in Peril program to identify and preserve historic sites by calling public attention to a select number of Alabama’s threatened historic and archaeological sites. The list raises awareness by highlighting their plight through statewide publicity, thus striving to become a catalyst for preservation. The AHC is proud to continue its relationship with Alabama Heritage to publish Alabama’s Places in Peril listing. The AHC’s partnership with Alabama Heritage will strengthen these efforts by reaching a key constituency.
