Most Endangered Historic Places



Announcing Maine Preservation’s 19th Annual Most Endangered Historic Places List 2017

The list will be presented on the WCSH-6 television show 207 on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 at 7pm.

Results will be posted shortly.

“Maine’s 2017 Most Endangered Historic Places List illustrates the diverse historic buildings and issues that are critical to the future of communities across our state,” said Greg Paxton, Executive Director of Maine Preservation. “Preservation of key structures is a catalyst for community revitalization, economic development and continued quality of life for the citizens of Maine’s towns and cities. Historic preservation bolstered the state’s economy throughout the recent downturn. To consolidate these gains, we must continue to wisely manage our downtowns, in town neighborhoods and rural historic assets to bolster our tax base and provide a firm foundation for future prosperity and quality of life, as this list illustrates.”


Listings this year highlight the Frank J. Wood Bridge in Brunswick/Topsham, Mary E. Taylor School in Camden, Waldo Theatre in Waldoboro, Bowery Beach Schoolhouse in Cape Elizabeth, A.B. Seavey House in Saco, historic residential neighborhoods, coastal and waterfront communities, historic houses and land trusts, and the downtown district and Historic District Commission of Wiscasset.
