Most endangered Places

Since 1999, the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation has maintained the LOUISIANA’S MOST ENDANGERED PLACES LIST, and advocated to save these threatened sites.

Please help us identify threatened historic buildings and sites across our state by completing a 2021 Most Endangered Places Nomination Form (online or hard copy) below. Sites are selected based on their historic integrity and the likelihood to bring about a positive resolution to their situation or to those of similar sites. 

The following parishes have yet to be represented among the Most Endangered Places: Acadia, Allen, Assumption, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Concordia, Evangeline, Jackson, Jefferson Davis, Pointe Coupee, Red River, St. Bernard, St. Helena, St. Mary, Terrebonne, Vermillion, West Carroll, and Winn. 

Nominations for 2021 are now open on rolling basis but closes March 7, 2021.

If you would like more information about any site that is currently endangered, please contact LTHP.
