Greater Portland Landmarks' Places in Peril program draws attention to vulnerable sites and serves as a catalyst for adaptive reuse and community revitalization.
Seeking Nominations for our 2017 Places in Peril
**Deadline for nominations is June 23, 2017**
Although Landmarks has been working for over 50 years to preserve historic resources in our community, many historic properties across greater Portland are threatened by demolition or neglect. Collectively, these properties contribute to the quality of life we enjoy in our cities and towns. Since 2012 Greater Portland Landmarks has maintained a list of endangered properties, bringing attention to threatened buildings, sites and historic places in Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, Cumberland, and Yarmouth.
Know of a threatened historic resource in your neighborhood or community?
"These properties face serious threats. These threats include things like sale or transfer without any historic preservation protections, neglect or lack of maintenance, or lack of funding. These properties help define greater Portland. In every case, the properties we’ve identified are prominently visible or have such historic significance that we must advocate for their protection and preservation."
