MOST ENDANGERED STRUCTURES EFFORTS MARK 20th YEAR!

Preservation Worcester celebrates the 20th anniversary of our annual Most Endangered Structures List. The list has proven to be a highly successful tool for identifying and selecting local architectural gems that are threatened by demolition, neglect or inappropriate use. To highlight the effectiveness of the program, this year in addition to selecting 10 endangered structures, we also identified 20 successes. Go to our Most Endangered Structures tab to see our complete list of threatened properties as well as our commendations list. Also, please nominate threatened properties for our 2016 Most Endangered Structures List.

These photographs were taken on June 25, 2015 and are the most recent photos we have that show the progress in stonework being done on the Clock Tower.  We expect work to be completed this September (2015) and will keep you posted.
