Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations for the 2015 Most Endangered Buildings List. Columbus Landmarks Advocacy Committee and Board of Trustees are reviewing the nominations and conducting research on the properties. The 2015 Most Endangered Buildings List will be announced at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 14 at St. Paul AME Church.
The purpose of the list is to create awareness of our city’s architectural heritage at risk of demolition, destruction or irreparable damage. These historic buildings and sites contribute not only to Columbus history, but also to the character of the community.
Columbus Landmarks developed an inaugural Most Endangered Buildings List featuring 13 historic structures in peril in May 2014. The buildings were identified and selected by Columbus Landmarks’ Advocacy Committee and approved by its Board of Trustees. The list provides organization with a priority work list for its efforts and help maintain the spotlight on the most threatened structures.
Of the 13 Buildings on last year’s list, two have been demolished (Clinton Elementary Annex and Vets Memorial); three have been saved (Gunning House, O’Shaughnessy Funeral Home, and the Dam Tender’s House); and eight are “pending” and eligible for nomination to the 2015 Most Endangered Buildings List.
