Florida Trust for Historic Preservation Announced 2021 Florida’s 11 to Save at
Preservation on Main Street Conference
List spotlights the most threatened historic properties in the state and drives the Florida Trust’s education and advocacy initiatives for the year ahead
On July 21 the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation announced the 2021 Florida’s 11 to Save, the most threatened historic properties in the state, at the Preservation on Main Street Annual Conference in collaboration with Florida Main Street.
This year’s list represents endangered historic resources in Florida’s Duval, Holmes, Jackson, Lake, Marion, Martin, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Volusia counties, covering hundreds of years of history and a variety of cultural resources.
Each year, the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation announces its 11 to Save program as part of its annual conference. The program is designed to increase the public’s awareness of the urgent need to save Florida’s historic resources, and to empower local preservationists and preservation groups in their efforts to preserve Florida’s rich history.
“We are grateful to those in communities throughout Florida who shared the historic places that matter to them through 11 to Save nominations,” said Florida Trust Board President Friederike Mittner. “We are excited to get to work with our 11 to Save partners to find solutions to preserve these special historic places in order to build communities, drive economic growth throughout the state and protect the past.”
Inclusion on the Florida’s 11 to Save is a starting point for the Florida Trust’s advocacy and education efforts and is intended to be part of a collaborative effort to identify custom solutions for each property. The Florida Trust partners with each location to determine what is most needed for the place and community. Listings are not in any order of importance.
