The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.We hope you'll join us February 7-8 at the annual HRC Taliesin Colloquium where we'll discuss how codes have impacted existing buildings and what to expect from upcoming code changes.
Now accepting applications for the 2020 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
Since 1988, the National Trust has used its list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places to raise awareness about the threats facing some of our nation's greatest treasures. The list, which has identified more than 300 sites to date, has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts that less than five percent of these sites have been lost.
When evaluating a potential site for inclusion on the list, we consider a range of factors, including its significance, whether there is a local group engaged in its preservation, the urgency of the threat the site faces, and potential solutions to that threat. Sites with a connection to women's history are particularly encouraged to apply this year.
If you know of an important site across the country that could benefit from the national spotlight that only the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places program can deliver, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, February 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
