Florida's 11 to Save
We rely on you to share the most endangered historic places in the state. The 11 to Save becomes the focus of our outreach and advocacy for the year
Each year, the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation announces its 11 to Save program as part of its Florida Preservation Conference. The program is designed to increase the public’s awareness of the urgent need to save Florida’s historic resources, and to empower local preservationists and preservation groups in their efforts to preserve Florida’s rich history. Inclusion on the Florida’s 11 to Save is a starting point for advocacy and education efforts, and are intended to be part of a collaborative effort to identify custom solutions for each property.
The 2017 Florida's 11 to Save
This year’s list reflects historic resources in Florida’s Highlands, Indian River, Hillsborough, Alachua, Dade, Leon, Sarasota and Santa Rosa counties, as well as thematic listings that can be found throughout the state.
Several themes emerged from this year’s Florida’s 11 to Save. Two properties are associated with historically significant women – cattle rancher and politician Edna Pearce Lockett and nationally renowned author Laura Riding Jackson. Two others highlight cultural resources affiliated with Florida’s African American history including the Jackson House in Tampa and a serial nomination for Historic African American Schools.
