Is your historic property endangered?

By Danielle

Is there a historic building, structure (like a bridge or monument) or site (this includes archaeology) in your area that is endangered?  If it’s endangered, it may be deteriorating, neglected or threatened by development or rezoning, among other things.

If you know of a cultural treasure that meets this criteria and is listed on or eligible for

Lynnside Manor, from the 2012 West Virginia Endangered Properties List, is on its way to being restored for a private owner and SAVED!

listing on the National Register of Historic Places, please submit a nomination to Preservation Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV) for it to be added to West Virginia’s 2013 Endangered Properties List, a collection of historic structures, buildings and sites threatened by demolition and/or disuse.

Organizations, owners and/or individuals associated with properties listed on the Endangered Properties List receive technical assistance from PAWV.  Technical assistance involves free consultation with the statewide field representative (who has over 20 years of contracting experience), in addition to help with grant writing, as well as increased notoriety and advocacy from PAWV.

Decisions for the 2013 list will be made in December of this year by PAWV staff and the Board of Directors. Nominations are accepted until November 15th.  Applications can be found HERE.

Additions to the Endangered Properties List are announced at History Day every February at the State Capitol Complex in Charleston, where property nominators and preservation supporters are invited to attend a press conference and advocate with PAWV for historic preservation. Click HERE to see lists from earlier years.

For questions or to submit a nomination for a compromised historic property, please contact or call 304.345.6005.
