Tornado Storm Damage to Historic Places – Your Eyes and Ears Needed!

from the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation:

Last week’s storms changed the lives of many Alabamians.  We at the Alabama Trust send our heartfelt condolences to those who lost loved ones and best wishes for a speedy recovery to those who suffered injury or property damage.

As communities across the state begin the process of rebuilding, it will undoubtedly be discovered that many historic places have been damaged or destroyed. The Alabama Historical Commission and the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation, working with the support of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, to assess what assistance is needed for affected historic properties and communities. The first step in the assessment is the compilation of a list of historic places that were damaged as well as those that were destroyed.

When circumstances permit, please send information about damaged or destroyed properties in your community to the ATHP at alabamatrust@uwa.edu.  Include the name of the property, location, kind of damage, assistance needed (small grants, volunteer labor, etc.) and the name and phone number, or e-mail address, for a contact person.
