We are thrilled to present the announcement video for the 2017 Most Endangered Places list that debuted this past Saturday at Vintage Washington: 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Most Endangered Places list. Since 1992, the Washington Trust has used the program to bring attention to over 160 threatened sites nominated by concerned citizens and organizations across the state. The Washington Trust assists advocates for these resources in developing strategies aimed at removing these threats, taking advantage of opportunities where they exist, and finding positive preservation solutions for listed resources.
