Seven to Save
The Preservation League draws statewide attention to New York’s most important and at-risk historic places through its Seven to Save list of endangered places.
Since 1999, the Preservation League has highlighted New York’s threatened historic sites through its Seven to Save list, which provides enhanced services from the League to bolster visibility and build support for preservation. Through partnerships with groups and individuals, threats to dozens of at-risk buildings, landscapes, downtowns and neighborhoods have been reduced and in many cases, eliminated by the Preservation League’s listing and subsequent actions. Press conferences, tours, grants and new legislation are among the strategies the Preservation League uses to secure the future of historic places at risk. The League also collaborates with advocates, elected officials and other stakeholders to craft preservation strategies and put these plans to work. Seven to Save transitioned to a biennial listing in 2010.
