The History and Preservation Coalition of Sarasota County has announced its second annual "Sarasota Six to Save" program.  Similar to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s "11 Most Endangered Historic Places" and the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation’s Florida’s "11 to Save," the preservation community in Sarasota County wants to bring awareness to historical resources that are currently at risk.  (Everything from neglect to climate change can put a historic property in peril.)  The organization's goal is to highlight six resources that are at most in danger, with the hope that public awareness can bring support.

The coalition is seeking nominations for this year's Sarasota Six to Save list; information and nomination forms can be found at the coalition’s website. The application deadline is April 30, and the final list will be announced during Historic Preservation Month in May.
