The 2022 Most Endangered Places list (and Watch List) includes a total of 24 properties. Some may be surprised to learn that many of these threatened properties are designated historic landmarks. This illustrates the important point that designation is sometimes the starting point for protecting a property. Additionally, all properties, whether landmarked or not, require continued attention and maintenance.
This tour includes the 11 historic landmarks found on this year's list. Three additional properties — Foundry Branch Trolley Trestle, Superintendent’s House at Dalecarlia Reservoir, and Watchman's Lodge and Tower — receive some level of protection, due to their location within larger designated areas.* However, they are not individually landmarked, and are not part of this tour.
