ETPA Announces 2011 Endangered List on Monday

 

On Monday, March 7, at 11:00 am, the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance (ETPA) announce the 2011 East Tennessee’s Endangered Heritage list of endangered historic buildings and places in the sixteen-county region.  The announcement will be made at the East Tennessee History Center, located at 601 South Gay Street.

This marks the second list of endangered historic places selected by the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance Board of Directors from nominations received from members and the general public.  Preservation strategies are developed for each site on the list and can include working with current property owners, government officials, citizens and/or potential new owners to preserve these important parts of East Tennessee’s heritage.  In some cases, ETPA will organize volunteer work days to help stabilize and protect sites.

ETPA works to protect places and structures with historic or cultural significance in Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier, and Union counties.  It is governed by a board of directors with representatives from across the region. ETPA carries out its mission through a variety of programs and encourages community support through education and advocacy.
