The DC Preservation League, Washington’s only citywide non-profit historic preservation organization promoting the preservation and enhancement of the District’s historic and built environment, issued its annual list of Most Endangered Places in Washington for 2010.
This list, issued annually since 1996, is selected by the Board of Trustees of the DC Preservation League from nominations submitted by concerned individuals and organizations across the city. These sites are selected based on the severity of the threats to the buildings and landscapes in question, whether through demolition, neglect, or inappropriate alteration. The list can include buildings, parks or other landscaped areas, as well as vistas and other aspects of the city’s unique planned history. All Most Endangered Places listed are located in the District of Columbia.
The sites on the 2010 list of Most Endangered Places in Washington are: Anne Archbold Hall, District of Columbia Historic Firehouses, Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, and 2228, 2234, 2238 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE and 2253 Mount View Place, SE located within the Anacostia Historic District.
