RAVENSWOOD — Did a “for sale” sign just pop up on a treasured house in your neighborhood? Is a spectacular neon sign living on borrowed time? Are there rumors of developers circling a vacant Art Deco storefront?

Here’s your chance to sound the alarm.

Preservation Chicago has opened up nominations to the public for the 2019 version of the organization’s annual “Most Endangered” list. (Click here to view the 2018 list.)

Send information about at-risk historic or architectural gems, or community favorites — be they buildings, structures or places — to Preservation Chicago by Jan. 7, 2019.

Suggestions can be submitted via email to “” or by mail to the Preservation Chicago office: 4410 N. Ravenswood Ave., 60640.

Be sure to include the building or structure’s address, the name it’s known by (when applicable) and a general description. 

Photographs aren’t required, but are helpful, along with any additional information that explains the building/structure’s importance and peril, according to Ward Miller, executive director of Preservation Chicago.

The “most endangered” list will be announced Feb. 27, 2019, at the Chicago Architecture Center.
