The National Trust for Historic Preservation released its 2013 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places today. The 26th annual edition of the list, it's designed to bring attention to neglected and endangered historically significant buildings and communities, from Houston's Astrodome to the Gay Head Lighthouse on Martha's Vineyard (above). While most entries on the list are threatened by development or intentional demolition, the lighthouse is slowly succumbing to the power of the waves, which are slowly eroding the ground on which the 1856 tower sits. See this, and all the points from the National Trust list, on the map below.
