NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Preservation Trust announced recently it will accept nominations for the 2014 Tennessee Preservation Trust’s Ten in Tennessee Endangered Places list. 

The Ten in Tenn gives citizens a chance to share historic places in the state they think are most threatened by development, demolition or neglect.

This will be the 13th year for the program, which is determined by a panel of preservation professionals and drives TPT’s advocacy and education efforts for the year. 

“As a statewide organization, it is vital to capture the thoughts and concerns of the people of Tennessee,” said David Currey, board president of the Tennessee Preservation Trust. “We ask again this year for anyone who is worried about a historic place in Tennessee to share it with us. Let us help make a difference in preserving the irreplaceable historic treasures that make Tennessee unique.”

The Tennessee Preservation Trust has seen successes from previous Ten in Tenn listings, including progress for the 2013 list. Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts has been saved, improvements have been made on several churches throughout the state and a new group was created to fund long-term solutions for the Kellytown archaeological area. The Delta Queen riverboat in Chattanooga received national recognition, including serving as the cover image for the 2014 National Preservation Trust calendar, and work continues to issue it new life.

Those interested in submitting a nomination for the 2014 Ten in Tenn can visit the website to submit their nomination, or print out a PDF nomination form and submit by mail or email. Forms can also be requested by emailing tnprestr@yahoo.com.

The deadline for nominations is Aug. 15.
