The Nation's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has announced its 2001 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

"For more than 60 years, it's been a monument to a day that will live in infamy, but Pearl Harbor's Ford Island - where remnants of bomb craters are still visible - is now threatened by a massive development initiative. In the nation's capital, the home of Carter Woodson, the father of the African-American history movement sits abandoned and forgotten, an ironic legacy of a man who spent his life preserving history and culture. And across the nation, historic movie theaters are fading to black every day, leaving gaping holes in once-vibrant main streets. These are just three of 11 sites the National Trust for Historic Preservation has named to its 2001 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places."
