Louisville preservationists on Thursday released their annual list of endangered places in and around the city.

The highlighted properties are what non-profit group Preservation Louisville considered to be the most at risk of being demolished or wrecked beyond repair.

Preservation Louisville works to protect the architectural heritage of the community and is asking for donations to help fund the much-needed preservation work on the listed properties, which include vacant and abandoned homes, old corner store fronts and historic churches.

Here is the entire list as shown on Preservation Louisville’s website:
