16 historic sites in 12 Ohio counties endangered, group says

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Preservation Ohio put out its list of endangered historic properties Wednesday, and 16 structures made the cut.

The annual list describes the sites most endangered for reasons such as demolition threat, abandonment, neglectful owner, dilapidation, obsolete use, lack of money for repairs, out-of the-way location or encroaching sprawl.

Stone Train Depot in Ashtabula and Sammel Lyon House in Columbia Station are among those named locally.

North Canton has two properties as well.

Three of the properties on the list this year were also on the 2015 list. They are still endangered and Preservation Ohio continues to monitor their status and working with supporters in the local communities in order to draw more attention and resources to the endangered historical properties.
