Do you have an endangered property?
From crumbling neighborhood landmarks to disappearing rural landscapes, our distinctive local heritage often struggles to survive. Fortunately, many historic treasures can be saved from destruction when concerned citizens work together to find solutions. Memphis Heritage invites the community to join us in our efforts to save our endangered heritage through advocacy and action.
Preservation strategies are developed for any site deemed endangered and Memphis Heritage can be a resource for working with current property owners, government officials, citizens and/or potential new owners to preserve these important parts of our community’s heritage.
When discussing endangered properties with Memphis Heritage, you should try to include the following information:
- Nature of the threat to the property
- Name and contact information for the current property owner (if available)
- Name and contact information for the individual or group submitting the property
- Any known historical information about the property (year built, architect, past owners, etc.)
