America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

The National Trust's list identifies parts of American history that are threatened by neglect, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy.

Although Southern California's Indian Pass and the 1,515 miles that comprise the upper Missouri River basin would appear to have little in common, they're linked by an unfortunate distinction: These lands of great beauty and spiritual significance, which have been called home by Native Americans for thousands of years, are today threatened one by a mining project and one by government neglect. Throughout the South, historic schools that were the result of an extraordinary partnership between two men one black, one white to further education for rural African Americans are forgotten and forlorn. And across the nation, historic neighborhoods are falling victim to a teardown epidemic as older homes are demolished and replaced with dramatically larger, out-of-scale new structures, that are eroding the historic fabric of the existing communities.
