Preservation Long Island’s Endangered Historic Places Program offers Long Islanders an opportunity to advocate for preservation priorities in their communities while learning how to use tools like landmark designation, tax incentives, and public outreach.

Local partners representing successful nominations receive technical assistance and advocacy support as they work to preserve at-risk historic places threatened by a variety of adverse conditions, from outright demolition to the lack of sustainable long-term stewardship plans.

Endangered Historic Places are featured on Preservation Long Island’s website and social media. We also support our listing partners in developing informational materials, such as leaflets or brochures, outlining the history of a site and its preservation needs.

Nominations for our Endangered Historic Places Program are open to the public. Submissions are reviewed and selected by a panel of Preservation Long Island staff, experts in architecture, historic preservation, and other related fields, as well as members of our Board of Trustees.

Nominations submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. 

Please carefully review the eligibility criteria, submission instructions, and nomination checklist. To inquire about the program, please contact our Preservation Director, Sarah Kautz, at 631- 492-4664 Ext.105 or

If you have any questions about the digital submission form, or experience technical difficulty with the submission, please contact our Assistant Director for Operations & Programs, Elizabeth Abrams, at 631-692-4664 Ext. 104 or

Significance: A nominated site must be historically, culturally, or architecturally significant and may encompass individual buildings, landscapes, structures, or any grouping thereof. However, the nominated site need not be listed on the National/State Registers of Historic Places or designated as a local landmark.

Threat: The existence and/or integrity of the nominated site must be seriously threatened. In addition to planned demolition, threats can include a pattern of neglect or exposure that will inevitably lead to loss; the planned introduction of harmful factors or insensitive redevelopment that will substantially diminish the context or setting; or inappropriate maintenance/alterations resulting in the loss of material integrity.

Impact: Inclusion in our Endangered Historic Places Program must have a positive impact on efforts to protect the nominated site. Nominators must demonstrate meaningful community interest and support for preservation of the site. Local partners must be sufficiently organized and prepared to advocate for preservation goals.
