America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

The National Trust for Historic Preservation publishes its 2004 list of America's 11 most endangered historic places.

Located in a remote part of Utah, Nine Mile Canyon, called 'the world's longest art gallery' for its 10,000 Native American rock-art images, is threatened by plans for extensive oil and gas exploration. Far away, in the oak and redwood-studded ranchlands of northern California, Ridgewood Ranch, Home of Seabiscuit, is in jeopardy, its former thoroughbred glory dulled by deterioration. In New York City, an unorthodox and controversial icon of the recent past, 2 Columbus Circle, located on the southwest corner of Central Park, may soon be stripped of its architectural integrity. And, a state known for its historic villages, winding back roads, spectacular mountain vistas and strong sense of community – Vermont – is once again besieged by the onslaught of big-box retail development.
