2015 Most Endangered List
of Historic Resources
Historic resources create a distinct sense of place and a sense of well-being. Preservation of these assets contributes to our quality of life, aesthetically, emotionally, and even has positive effects on our health. Amazingly, although study after study has proven these significant benefits to our daily existence, many historic buildings and sites continue to be threatened or lost forever.
By increasing public awareness and encouraging action to save our heritage, SOHO has a very good track record of reducing the number of major losses throughout the county. The Most Endangered List is no lightweight wringing of hands. Publicizing this list, as SOHO has done for more than a quarter of a century, helps everyone, from the general public and our membership to politicians and civic groups, to focus and take action on the most significant buildings and places that are imminently at-risk.
These sites remain under SOHO's watchful eye, as we monitor their condition, situations and prospects for acceptable outcomes, and seek new ways to advocate for their preservation.
As for the 2015 Most Endangered List, you'll find it includes a total of eleven sites - eight carried over from past years and three new ones.
SOHO's job is to make sure our historically important buildings and sites survive in part so that San Diego's story can be told. We need your help to be successful. If you are not a member, join today, if you are a member, get a friend to join. Our historic places matter, together we can save San Diego's endangered sites.
Please, do what you can to support these endangered elements of our heritage. They may appear to be silent monuments, but in reality, they're all crying out for public attention, appreciation, and, of course, preservation. Let's work together to make sure San Diego's story, our unique and centuries old story, endures in its buildings, sites and landscapes that will continue to inspire and inform many generations to come.
