Annual Endangered Historic Places List Names Area High School

Apr 25, 2012

The group Landmarks Illinois is out with its annual list of the most endangered historic places in the state including a high school in southern Illinois.

This year's list of Illinois' ten most endangered historic places includes the usual mix of farmhouses, residences and government buildings along with Harrisburg High School.  The school is still in use today.  It was built in the early 1900's and added on to over the years.  This year's list of endangered historic places also includes four other neighborhood schools, the city hall in Freeport, and a building in Cook County that once housed widows of Civil War soldiers.

Landmarks Illinois is a non-profit group that publishes the annual list of endangered places
