(LAWRENCEBURG, IN) -- Lawrenceburg's historic Twin Bays mansion is among 10 Indiana landmarks identified by the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana as facing imminent threat.
Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana presents its annual 10 Most Endangered list to call public attention to irreplaceable historic sites on the verge of extinction. Jeopardized by abandonment, neglect, deterioration and sprawl, the identified Hoosier landmarks could soon be lost forever.
Built around 1860 on a prominent hillside, Twin Bays overlooks the Eads Parkway (U.S. 50) and the Ohio River.
Since the inception of the Most Endangered program in 1991, Historic Landmarks Foundation claims 46 saves and 10 losses.
Sites remain on the Most Endangered list until they're declared safe or no longer in immediate danger. Indiana's 10 Most Endangered historic places in 2008 are:
Bush Stadium, Indianapolis
Old Lowell Grade School, Lowell
Maple Grove Road Historic District, Bloomington
Syracuse Depot, Syracuse
Colgate-Palmolive plant and clock, Clarksville
