Georgia’s Most Endangered Historic Places

Saving Historic Sites

The Georgia Trust’s Places in Peril program seeks to identify and preserve historic sites threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy.

The list raises awareness about Georgia’s significant historic, archaeological and cultural resources, including buildings, structures, districts, archaeological sites and cultural landscapes. 

Exciting News! Our Places in Peril program is evolving. See below to learn more about changes to the program for our 2025 list and to make a nomination. 

Our Places in Peril Program is Evolving!

After 20 remarkable years of Places in Peril, we at the Georgia Trust are thrilled to announce exciting changes to one of our signature programs. As advocates for Georgia’s rich built and cultural heritage, we’re constantly evolving to better serve our communities. These changes reflect our commitment to accessibility, inclusivity, and adaptability as we continue our mission to preserve and protect Georgia’s diverse historic resources.
