There’s that vacant historic building you drive by on your way to work each day. Or that new development you just heard about- the one that’s planned to wipe out a historic farm . Or what about all the historic resources of your town that aren’t protected because you don’t have a historic preservation ordinance?
Have you ever asked yourself, “Why isn’t someone doing something to protect these important places?” YOU can be that someone.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2011 list of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places in New Jersey . 2011 will mark PNJ’s 17th year of using this tool to publicize the plights of New Jersey’s threatened historic resources and the overarching conditions- diminished funds, a lack of effective legislation, neglect, indifference, and more- that keep our historic treasures under constant threat. The fates of countless landmarks have been affected when local advocates have used the 10 Most Endangered list to spread the word about a property’s plight.
But history is in your hands. PNJ depends on local advocates to make us aware of important places that need attention. Do you know of an endangered historic property? Tell us about it! Nomination forms are available on our website.
Nomination period closes DECEMBER 7, 2010. Don’t delay- help us help your heritage today!
