Knox Heritage invites the general public to submit nominations of Knoxville’s and Knox County’s most endangered places or structures to be included in the 2018 “Fragile & Fading” List of Endangered Historic Places. The deadline for nominations is 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 16th.

Each May during National Preservation Month, Knox Heritage announces its “Fragile & Fading” endangered list to educate the public and local leaders about the plight of significant historic resources.  The list provides a work plan for the non-profit organization for the next twelve months.  Preservation strategies are developed for each site on the list and can include working with current property owners, government officials, citizens and/or potential new owners to preserve these important parts of our community’s heritage.

  • Nature of the threat to the property
  • Name and contact information for the individual or group submitting the nomination
