Announcing the 2017 Most Threatened Historic Places List!


Today, HWF Executive Director George Edwards, Board of Directors President Walker Abney and Administrator for the NC State Historic Preservation Office and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer Ramona Bartos introduced Historic Wilmington Foundation’s 12 annual Most Threatened Historic Places List!

The list casts a spotlight on threatened sites and structures throughout the Lower Cape Fear Region.  In order to save sites such as those found on Most Threatened List, the  Foundation has employed various strategies such as easements and a revolving fund.  To date, Historic Wilmington Foundation has saved 101 properties in Wilmington alone.  Today, HWF Executive Director George Edwards, Board of Directors President Walker Abney and Administrator for the NC State Historic Preservation Office and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer Ramona Bartos introduced Historic Wilmington Foundation’s 12 annual Most Threatened Historic Places List!

Historic Wilmington Foundation has been working to preserve and protect the historic treasures of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear since 1966.  The need for these efforts continues as evidenced by both the new additions to the list and the ongoing threat to previously listed sites.  Small historic houses, historic cemeteries, schools, and downtown areas are the landmarks of our local history and culture.  If not saved, they will be lost forever.  The Foundation’s list, combined with the efforts of preservationists, concerned citizens and local government, will result in success stories for these architectural and cultural treasures.
