2010 PLACES IN PERIL

Nominate a Place in Peril

Read the latest AJC article: "Neglect, destruction threaten Georgia Trust's Top 10 places" by Mark Davis

Historic schools. Courthouses. Old textile mills. Many we pass by so often we no longer notice the swooping ornate marble, the 100-year-old brickwork, the grand courthouse clock. But these places and more face threats everyday---perhaps more so because we've grown so used to seeing them.

That's why The Georgia Trust is bringing attention to 10 Places in Peril across the state and providing ways you can help in your community. Each site represents hundreds of similar sites throughout our state that are just as endangered and in need of community help as the 10 we have identified. So take a look at this year's list, learn more about the program, and find out how you can help protect these properties others in your community.
