West Virginia Endangered Properties
Endangered lists are used by preservation organizations to bring attention to the potential loss of historical places and to find solutions to the problems leading to the eventual loss of the historical places.
The selected properties contribute to our understanding of our heritage, which will be diminished if they are lost. PAWV revived its endangered list program in 2009 with a competitive nomination process and with technical assistance provided to the selected properties.
To nominate your building to the West Virginia Endangered Properties List, the property must be listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and meet other criteria such as historic significance, preservation emergency, and local support. Nominations are due annually on March 30th. Learn more by downloading the Endangered Properties Nomination form (WORD).
