Nominations for Preservation Worcester’s Most Endangered Structures List

Preservation Worcester is seeking nominations for its 2013 Most Endangered Structures list.  You can visit their website for more information about the project & to download the nomination form.  Nominations are due by January 11.

Related: One of the items on the 2008 Most Endangered Structure List was the historical roadway marker at the corner of Belmont and Shrewsbury Streets.

According to MassDOT, one of the 10 markers originally erected in the city of Worcester (the Wigwam Hill marker — which is the marker for Route 20 and Lake Avenue) has been restored by students at Worcester Technical High School.

It seems as if MassDOT is restoring each of these markers.

Worcester originally had 10 of these markers, and I believe eight remain.  You can look at this amazingly extensive list for the markers across the state; Worcester’s markers are at the end of the list.
