|Photographs of Select Sites on the Blue Grass Trust's Eleven in Their Eleventh Hour List|
The list of counties largely resembles those included in the 2006 World Monument Fund's designation of the Inner Bluegrass Region. The Blue Grass Trust included Madison County on its "11 Endangered List" while omitting Anderson County. All Kentucky counties, however, have "at risk" structures and deserve the attention of preservationists.
The BGT's list is a great step toward recognizing that preservation can and should occur throughout Kentucky and not only in our urban cores. The 14 structures within the 11 counties also reflect that theme.
According to the BGT, "the list highlights endangered properties and how their situations speak to larger preservation issues in the Bluegrass. The goal of the list is to create a progressive dialogue that moves toward positive long-term solutions. The criteria used for selecting the properties include historic significance, lack of protection from demolition, condition of structure, or architectural significance."
The sites are listed below.
