A presentation to discuss the 2016 list of Oklahoma’s Most Endangered Historic Places will take place in Newkirk on Tuesday, July 26.  

David Pettyjohn, Executive Director of Preservation Oklahoma, will speak at the Newkirk Public Library, located at 116 N. Maple, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. 

An exhibit featuring the 2016 list will be on display in the library until August 12.

“The Endangered Historic Places List is an effort to raise awareness about historic sites and preservation issues, but has also been a powerful mechanism for saving significant buildings,” says Pettyjohn.  “We are delighted that the Newkirk Public Library is hosting the exhibit.”

Since 1993, Preservation Oklahoma has recognized historic sites across the state at risk of demolition or deterioration, raising awareness of the need to protect Oklahoma’s historic resources.  While inclusion on the list does not guarantee protection or funding, it can be a key component in mobilizing support for the preservation of historic sites.

The exhibit is generously funded by the Kirkpatrick Foundation and Cherokee Nation Businesses.
