It's a bit of a bitter pill to swallow when the Grand Canyon makes a list of the most endangered places in America. But the landmark finds itself standing uncomfortably next to a diverse array of natural sites, historic buildings and cultural centers that made the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 2015 List of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. The 28th annual list is quite diverse, highlighting numerous aspects of American history from preservation battles to civil rights struggles. Inclusion on the list has traditionally been a positive; of the more than 250 sites listed, only a few have been lost.
