2013 Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Resources

16th Annual List of Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Properties Announced

Portland, Maine.  Maine Preservation announced its 16th Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Properties List at a press conference at City Hall on Thursday August 29th at 9:30 AM.

The Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Properties List began in 1996 for the purpose of identifying and raising public awareness of the breadth and interest in preserving endangered and threatened historic properties and materials.  Maine Preservation is a statewide, nonprofit, membership organization that promotes and preserves historic places, buildings, downtowns and neighborhoods, strengthening the cultural and economic vitality of Maine communities.

“Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Properties List for 2013 illustrates the broad range of historic buildings and structures in our state,” said Greg Paxton, executive director of Maine Preservation. “Preservation of these key structures can be a catalyst for community revitalization, economic development and continued quality of life for the citizens of Maine’s towns and cities. While historic preservation has done relatively well in the recent challenged economy, we must continue to wisely manage and use of our existing buildings, bolster our tax base and provide a firm foundation for future prosperity and quality of life, as this list illustrates.”

Listings this year highlight Kennebec Arsenal in Augusta, St. Joseph’s Church in Lewiston, Stevens School in Hallowell, Stackpole Bridge in Saco, Goddard House and Narramissic Farm in Bridgton, Odd Fellows Block in Norway, the Winnegance Store in Bath, Annie Mills Farmstead in Aurora, George Washington Lodge in Pembroke, the B&A Caboose and Water Tower in Frenchville and Barrell Grove, a house in York.
