List of threatened historic sites in the United States

This article provides a List of threatened historic sites in the United States. A site is deemed historic if it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places or an official State or Local landmark list. While there are many historic places in the U.S. that are not listed in an official government listing of landmarks, the purpose of this article is to report threats only to government-listed landmarks. A site is deemed threatened for this article if there is verifiable information that it is threatened. Documentation may include:

  • credible reports in publications, including news articles
  • listing on various watch organizations' lists

The station is a 250-megawatt, Circulating Fluidized Bed, coal-fired power plant with 6-megawatt of wind generation. Sections of the water intake and wastewater lines, overhead electric transmission lines, and the rail spur are proposed to be constructed within the NHL boundaries. Because this NHL’s integrity is based on visual landscape qualities, the facilities planned present a high likelihood of negatively impacting the significant historic scene."
