PORTLAND – Maine Preservation announces it is seeking nominations from across the state for historic sites and structures that would qualify for inclusion on the ninth annual list of Maine’s Most Endangered Historic Properties.

Maine Preservation’s list was established in 1996. The purpose is to identify historic properties that are threatened by deterioration and demolition in order to raise public awareness and develop partnerships for effective rescue strategies.

This year, nominations of endangered places and spaces within a threatened environment are specifically encouraged. Industrial sites, mills, coastal fishing villages, cultural landscapes and scenic views, working farms and barns – the irreplaceable resources all tell a story about Maine’s changing environment.

The nomination deadline is April 2. Nominations are reviewed for final selection by the Maine Preservation board of trustees with input from the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. The 2004 list will be announced in early July. Nomination criteria can be found at www.mainepreservation.org.
