WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Some educational landmarks highlight this year’s list of the most endangered historic properties in our area.

The Historic Wilmington Foundation’s sixth annual announcement is part of its campaign to preserve the unique architectural heritage of the region and raise awareness on the threatened sites.

The list includes Rosenwald Schools in Pender County, the former Topsail High School in Hampstead and the Market Street canopy.

“Today’s listings, which include three new sites, behind us the majestic tree canopy of Market Street, this is one of those defining elements of our community, yet time, disease and traffic and the environment is working a hardship on this absolutely incredible resource,” HWF Executive Director George Edwards said.

Added to the watch list were the Penderlea Hosiery Mill on NC 11 in Pender County and St. Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church, which is also in Pender County.
