2017 11toSave_ImageBox

The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation announced the 2017 Florida’s 11 to Save, the most threatened historic properties in the state, at its 2017 Florida Preservation Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Each year, the Florida Trust announces its 11 to Save program, (formerly 11-Most Endangered) 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 the Florida Trust’s advocacy and education efforts, and are intended to be part of a collaborative effort to identify custom solutions for each property. Listings are not in any order of importance.
