America 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

National Trust for Historic Preservation announces its 2003 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

"Whether churches, synagogues, meetinghouses or mosques, America's urban religious structures give eloquent testimony to the American experience and the quest for religious freedom that helped shape our nation - but these monuments to faith are falling victim to changing demographics, limited capital budgets, soaring real-estate values, and often the wrecking ball. Meanwhile, just outside Boston, on the road made famous by a group of scrappy Revolutionaries, Minute Man National Historical Park, the cradle of the American Revolution, is once again engulfed in battle. In Arkansas' Hot Springs National Park, North America's greatest collection of historic bathhouses is deteriorated and running out of steam. And in New York, the curvilinear TWA Terminal at JFK International Airport, an icon of modern design, may soon have its wings clipped.These are just four of 11 sites the National Trust for Historic Preservation named today to its 2003 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places."
