America’s Most Endangered Places

While the Astrodome may not be everybody’s cup of tea, it is a landmark for stadium design and is now one of 11 buildings designated as endangered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The list, which also includes the Gay Head lighthouse on Martha’s Vineyard and the Pan American’s Worldport Terminal at JFK Airport, has worked to preserve and protect both landscapes and structures that represent American heritage that have fallen into serious disrepair.
