Project Overview

Recipient: Preservation Alliance of Minnesota

A prominent county courthouse, a Depression-era school building, an iconic Modern ice-cream stand, and a Northern Minnesota lakeside overlook are among the diverse sites named to the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota’s 2010 list of the state’s 10 Most Endangered Historic Places.

A photographic exhibit featuring the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places for 2010 was created with MHCG funds and displayed at museums, libraries, and other public places statewide throughout the year.

The 10 Most Endangered Historic Places program is designed to spotlight historic properties that face imminent danger through demolition and neglect, organizational and financial challenges, and restrictive and inappropriate public policy.

Of the nearly 140 historic places listed over the life of this important program, two-thirds have been saved in part through the awareness generated by their listing.
