2015 List – Colorado’s Most Endangered Places


The 2015 sites have been selected and officially announced!  

Colorado Preservation Inc’s Most Endangered Places for 2015 are……

2015 sites

Four diverse sites were selected in 2015 that speak to Colorado’s evolution and development.  The sites include one of Denver’s early streetcars, a cultural landscape tied to the orchard industry, one of the most intact gold dredges in the state (and possibly the nation), and one of Colorado’s largest producing lead & silver mines.

Colorado Preservation, Inc. through its Endangered Places Program devotes staff time and resources to raise funds and rally concerned citizens so that listed, as well as non-listed, sites can be saved. We are proud to be able to work within communities as issues and threats arise in order to advocate for preservation throughout the state.
