AAHP has compiled this annual list for 28 years (since 1991). The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation (AAHP) reveals its Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties list the first part of May during Historic Preservation Month. This list is intended to bring public awareness to Alaska’s architectural and cultural treasures that are threatened by destruction or irreversible damage. Heightened awareness often leads to increased support for the conservation of endangered historic properties, which are state assets important to tourism, economic development, and the heritage of Alaska.
The list is the first step to participate in the AAHP Ten Most Endangered Grant Program, which funds hands-on preservation work on endangered properties and serves as seed money to leverage funding from other sources. Properties listed on the 2019 List will be eligible to apply to AAHP for these matching grants, which are made possible through generous donations to the Grant Program from private individuals and organizations which support these preservation efforts.
