'Endangered places' cover 'waterfront,' even Brooklyn's

Skip to next paragraph

To draw attention to threatened architectural and cultural treasures, the National Trust for Historic Preservation annually identifies 11 places that it says are most endangered. Over the 20-year existence of the list, it has included the Antietam Civil War battlefield in Maryland, baseball's Tiger Stadium in Detroit, and the oldest surviving McDonald's restaurant, in Downey, Calif. This year's selections are as diverse as ever, from the dockyards and factories that give the waterfront of Brooklyn, N.Y., its special character to the northern California rancheria once inhabited by a native American tribe. The complete list:

Brooklyn's industrial waterfront (New York)
El Camino Real Historic Trail (New Mexico)
H.H. Richardson House (Brookline, Mass.)
Hialeah Park Race Course (Hialeah, Fla.)
Historic places in transmission line corridors (nationwide)
US Route 66 motels (Illinois to California)
Historic structures in Mark Twain National Forest (29 counties in Missouri)
Minidoka Internment Camp (Hunt, Idaho)
Philip Simmons Workshop and Home (Charleston, S.C.)
Piñon Canyon (Colorado)
Stewart's Point Rancheria (Sonoma County, Calif.)
