Five neglected structures and the threat of a gas pipeline crossing are on the 2015 Endangered Sites listing announced this past Saturday (May 30), by the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation. A Bulldozer Award for the demolition of the historic Woods End house near Hidden Valley High School was announced for the Roanoke County School Board.

The sites:

Mill stones

Gas pipeline route

Billy’s cabin

Ole Monterey cabin

Spickard house

The Preservation Foundation has called attention to threats against old, potentially useful buildings and natural resources annually since 1996. The Foundation encourages owners to find ways to use these older properties and to care for natural resources.
