Nominations Sought for 2016 Endangered List

Arlington is a great community with modern high rises and vibrant shopping areas, along with older commercial strips and quiet single-family neighborhoods. Is there a building or place that you see or use in your daily life and feel is an important part of your experience of living or working in Arlington? Are you concerned that it may be under redevelopment threat or is disappearing due to lack of attention or other factors?

If so, we encourage you to nominate it for Preservation Arlington’s 2016 list of Arlington’s Most Endangered Historic Places.

Preservation Arlington is seeking nominations of specific properties and places as well as general categories of properties that are threatened here in Arlington. The 2015 Arlington’s Most Endangered Historic Places List included specific buildings and sites such as Reevesland, Wilson School, and Arlington Presbyterian Church, as well as broader categories such as dive bars, garden apartments and local historic districts.

This annual listing is intended to heighten awareness of historic sites and resources in the County and to inspire advocacy on behalf of preservation within the Arlington community. Previous years’ Endangered Lists can be found at this link.

Nominations can be submitted through March 12, 2016. Each nomination should include the property name, address, and a few sentences on why you think it is important and your understanding of the threat. Please include your name and contact information with the nominations. Nominations should be emailed to

The 2016 list will be released during Preservation Month 2016 (May). Thank you!
