As a concerned citizen you may nominate an endangered property in your community to be included on our Places In Peril List. If chosen for listing, the endangered property will benefit from press releases and social media updates that call attention to the endangered property.  Ideally, the attention received through the Places in Peril list helps connect funds, investors, and volunteers with the troubled property in hopes it may be saved. Places in Peril nominations are accepted year-round.

Some Places in Peril, such as the School for the Blind in Gary and the Railroad Roundhouse in Lead, have been rehabilitated since their inclusion on the Places in Peril list, and they now host thriving businesses in their communities.  Other properties are in the process of being rehabilitated, while some are still endangered or have unfortunately been lost.  PSD’s ultimate goal with the Places in Peril program is to draw attention to South Dakota’s threatened historic resources and to prevent the unnecessary loss of our architectural heritage.

If you would like to nominate a site or structure to the Places in Peril list, please download our Places in Peril Nomination Form, complete it, and mail it with the necessary documentation. Please follow the nomination requirements carefully.
