America's most endangered historic places named

Jun 15, 2011 5:47:00 PM - thestate.com
Endangered sites listed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation:

- China Alley, Hanford, Calif. This 19th century Chinatown is almost untouched by time, but some of its buildings and artifacts are in dire disrepair. The buildings are vulnerable to alterations, as there is no historic preservation staff or commission to enforce preservation protections.

- Prentice Women's Hospital, Chicago. The cloverleaf-shaped hospital building is perhaps the list's most endangered site. Northwestern University has said it plans to raze the building to build a new facility, but preservationists argue it's a prime candidate for reuse.

- John Coltrane's house, Long Island, N.Y. The house where Coltrane wrote "A Love Supreme" has deteriorated due to a lack of funds. A local group hopes to restore the site as an education center but needs additional support.

- Pillsbury A Mill, Minneapolis. This plant that was once the world's largest, most advanced flour mill now stands vacant and is in danger of piecemeal development. It's a National Historic Landmark.
