It’s time to nominate buildings to Columbus Landmarks’ fourth annual Most Endangered Buildings List! The list creates public awareness of our city’s architectural heritage that is most at risk of demolition, destruction or irreparable damage.
It only takes a minute to nominate and we need your help identifying buildings in our city in need of attention and worthy of preservation. We seek nominations of historic buildings and sites that contribute not only to the history of Columbus, but also to the character of our community. Nominations are open from March 1 – March 31, 2017.
The 2017 Most Endangered Buildings List will be announced at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 11 at Cristo Rey Columbus High School.
Of the 13 Buildings on last year’s list, one was demolished (N. Franklin Elementary School, 1122 North Hague Ave.); one is considered saved (the two remaining buildings of Poindexter Village, 290 N. Champion Ave.) and 11 are “pending” and eligible for re-nomination to the 2017 list (Pavey Block, Ohio National Bank, Original Port Columbus Terminal, Indianola Jr. High School, Second Empire House, Elam Drake Farm, Holy Rosary High School, Columbus Railway Power & Light, Macon Lounge, Mt. Vernon Ave. Commercial Building, and Pilgrim Elementary School.)
Columbus Landmarks maintains an active “watch list” of properties of concern that are not included on the Most Endangered Buildings List. Individuals are encouraged to contact Columbus Landmarks regarding buildings at risk due to vacancy, destruction or damage. Please continue to be our eyes and ears in your neighborhood!
