The National Trust for Historic Preservation features sites of historic and cultural importance to Black, Indigenous, Latinx and Caribbean communities—all threatened by nature or development—on its 2018 list of the “11 Most Endangered Historic Places” today (June 26).

This year’s list, like previous iterations, aims to illuminate buildings and districts that the preservation organization believes could disappear or suffer irreversible damage without support from local communities, government and industry. They include Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, which both that withstood so much damage from hurricanes last year that the National Trust listed them as “Hurricane-Damaged Historic Resources.”
