8 Arkansas Properties Added to State's "Most Endangered Places" List

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Eight properties in the Natural State are now on Preserve Arkansas' "Most Endangered Places for 2017" list. 
 
These places include ice houses, rural churches, neighborhood schools slated for closure, and two historically African American neighborhoods. The list came from nominations submitted from people and organizations thoroughout the state and it's updated each year.
 
"So, everything from cemeteries to the mid-century mark, I think that was our date range, some Native American Burial grounds that are unknown and unprotected, all the way up to Franklin Elementary School, which was a modern design in 1949," Rachel Patton, executive director for Preserve Arkansas, said.
 
The group says the goal is to raise awareness and generate discussion about how to save these historical places.
