The West Virginia Endangered Properties List is a collection of the state’s historic resources in danger of being forever lost. The goal of this list is to draw attention to our Mountain State’s endangered historic properties and encourage the preservation of these special places.
PAWV invites you to nominate a historic, but threatened, building or site to the West Virginia Endangered Properties List.
To nominate your building to the West Virginia Endangered Properties List, the property must be listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and meet other criteria such as historic significance, preservation emergency, and local support.
Sites added to the West Virginia Endangered Properties List will receive targeted advocacy; statewide publicity, technical assistance from PAWV, eligibility for Saving Historic Places Grants and PAWV fundraising partnerships, and a preference for hands-on workshops at your property with direct support to organize.
Nominations are due on December 31 annually with a special announcement each February at the State Capitol in Charleston, WV.
More information is available on PAWV’s website.
