PPS Seeks Noms For Ten Most Endangered List

KPT House The Providence Preservation Society is accepting nominations for properties on the brink.

Each year, the Providence Preservation Society (PPS) assembles the Most Endangered Properties List to highlight historic resources that are endangered by threats such as neglect, deterioration, demolition, development, insufficient funds, and adverse public policy. Our Historic Preservation Awards, on the other hand, recognize significant contributions to the preservation of Providence’s historic resources and the enrichment of its vibrant neighborhoods.

PPS relies on the public to be our eyes and ears in the community, helping to identify both threatened historic resources and admirable preservation projects in Providence. If you know of a building that is threatened, or a project that has brought new life to a building, please complete an online nomination form at PPSRI nominations.

There has been some recent good news for two buildings on the 2012 Ten Most Endangered Properties List: The Clarke Flower Shop was recently purchased at auction by real estate developer Peter M. Scotti; and there has been some renewed interest in the Dynamo House. Pictured here is the 1867 Kendrick-Prentice-Tirocchi House on Broadway if you’re looking for a little fixer-upper.
