Announcing Indiana's 10 Most Endangered

4/24/2013

 Eagle Mill, Madison, Jefferson County
The Eagle Cotton Mill in Madison's National Historic Landmmark District is vacant and open to the elements and needs redevelopment before the walls come down.

Indiana Landmarks announces the 10 Most Endangered, an annual list of Hoosier landmarks in jeopardy.

 

“Our mission is to save meaningful places, and this is a list of ten important places in greatest danger of being lost,” says Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks, a nonprofit preservation organization. “All of these places are full of memories and meaning and revitalization potential.”

 

The sites that achieve 10 Most Endangered status are significant and irreplaceable -- and often challenging to save. “These landmarks preserve connections to our shared heritage and restoring them can spur broader revitalization,” Davis adds. Indiana Landmarks uses the Most Endangered list to bring attention to the imperiled sites and find solutions that will ensure their preservation.

 

Since the first 10 Most Endangered list in 1991, Indiana Landmarks counts only 12 losses among 92 historic places in severe jeopardy that have appeared on the list. The 2013 10 Most Endangered list includes seven new entries and three landmarks making repeat appearances.

 

New on the list:

Anderson Athletic Park Pool, Anderson

Bowen House in Delphi, overlooking Deer Creek

Brookview-Irvington Park Historic District and State Boulevard, Fort Wayne

Eagle Cotton Mill, Madison

Flanner House Homes Historic District and Phillips Temple, Indianapolis

Kingsbury Ordnance Plant Employment Office, Kingsbury

Walkerton Church, Walkerton

 

Repeating from 2012 list:

Harmony Way Bridge, between New Harmony and White County, Illinois

Old Clarksville Site, Clarksville

The Pantheon Theatre, Vincennes
