The Massachusetts Most Endangered
Historic Resources Program

FALL 2023

Program Background
Since 1993, Preservation Massachusetts had endeavored to identify and aid in the preservation of endangered historic resources across the Commonwealth. As our core advocacy and education program, Preservation Massachusetts utilizes our statewide visibility to spotlight places, buildings or structures under threat, increase awareness about them and work collaboratively with key stakeholders to find a positive outcome. 
Though the program is only an honorary designation, it can serve as a catalyst for action and opportunities.  Preservation Massachusetts works with listed resources as priority projects, drawing upon our staff expertise, technical assistance abilities and networks, in an effort to see the listed resources, and the people committed to them, put on the path toward preservation.
