Group releases 9 most endangered sites in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Louisiana Landmarks Society released its list of the nine most endangered sites in New Orleans.

The list identifies the most endangered historic resources. The goal of the program is to save historic places, preservation education and supporting preservation efforts.

This year's list includes homes, famous landmarks and even the New Orleans Riverfront.

The group says potential development on the Riverfront could lead to mid-rise towers in century-old neighborhoods that is out of scale.

Fort Pike made the list because of its location at Pass Rigolets, which is contributing to its endangerment. In addition to hurricane damage, waves, rising damp and uneven soil setting are threatening the stability of the fort.

Smaller properties, like the Carrollton Courthouse, are threatened by the possibility of being demolished and deterioration.
