The Massachusetts Most Endangered
Historic Resources Program
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.
The Most Endangered Program will return in 2020, along with a new update of this page that will feature examples of successful nominations, a "how to" guide for filling out a nomination form and more.  Nomination forms will be available after January 1, 2020.
