As the month of May is designated as Preservation Month, each year in May, the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation announces our Annual Endangered Sites List to call attention to local history, special places, and the possibility that these significant sites are in danger of being lost forever unless efforts are made to preserve them.

2024 RVPF Endangered sites

The 2024 endangered Sites were announced on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 in conjunction with Preservation Month and Preservation Virginia’s announcement of their 2024 Endangered Historic Sites. 

The Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation’s intent is not to shame or punish the current owners but to bring attention to these sites and encourage their preservation and stewardship. The goal is to work closely with property owners and local governments in exploring options to promote their preservation. 

Only by ongoing public awareness, partnerships and collaborations, innovative technologies, sustainable conservation practices, education and capacity-building programs, and government can we ensure the continued protection and conservation of these valuable cultural assets.
