WASHINGTON — The National Trust for Historic Preservation recently released its listing of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It includes sites from Virginia to Hawaii.
Preservationists say a major slave-trading center in the one-time Confederate capital of Richmond, Va., is threatened by potential development of a minor league ballpark. The Shockoe Bottom area was home to Solomon Northup’s jail, featured in the film 12 Years a Slave, and still contains underground artifacts.
For the first time, the list includes two sites from the same city: Cincinnati’s symbolic Art Deco Union Terminal and its Music Hall. Both sites need extensive repairs. Here’s a look at some of the list, through photos.
