There are many ways that our irreplaceable historic architectectural, cultural, and archaeological resources in North Dakota can become "endangered." This list is an advocacy tool that helps draw public attention to these important places and the threats they face, whether its demolition, substantial alteration, or deterioration through neglect and vandalism.
To qualify, a site must be a resource having historic, architectural, cultural, or archaeological significance that is in imminent danger of being lost. Based on the nominations received, the committee selects the top three as the "Most Endangered Places," and uses PND's communications network to advocate for these places. Places selected for the list typically have local grassroots supporters actively working to preserve them.
Nominations may be submitted using the online nomination form and must be received by June 1.
