The 2016 sites have been selected and officially announced!  

Colorado Preservation Inc’s Most Endangered Places for 2016 are……

2016 all

Four diverse sites were selected in 2016 that speak to sites of community, entertainment, and employment.  The sites include one of two of Colorado’s early theaters, a historic bandshell, and a sugar beet factory.  The Great Western Sugar Factory is the first of this resource type listed in the Endangered Places Program.

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.
