Places and Spaces

The DC Preservation League recognizes current issues relating to preserving the landmarks and historic neighborhoods that make our city unique. 

Beginning in 1996, the DC Preservation League has announced annually a list of Most Endangered Places to draw attention to Washington, DC’s, historically, culturally and architecturally significant places that may be threatened with ill-advised alteration or demolition through neglect or abandonment.
Learn about District of Columbia’s important and irreplaceable historic places and spaces by exploring the new free app – DC Historic Sites.
The application, HistoryQuest DC, is an interactive GIS map that provides historical data on approximately 127,000 extant buildings in Washington, DC.
