Cemeteries, murals, artists' homes on 2022 list of most endangered historic places in America

One of Houston’s oldest-known platted African American cemeteries, the East Hampton home and studios of Abstract Expressionist artists James Brooks and Charlotte Park, a Jewish mortuary chapel in Hartford, and, in a first-of-its-kind inclusion, a series of 1960s and 70s-era Colorado murals created as part of the Chicano/a/x Movement, are among America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places for 2022.

Now in its 35th year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s annual list of architectural and cultural heritage sites that are at risk of suffering further damage or being lost altogether also often—but not always—features an imperiled modernist building or two. This year’s list features one, and it’s fascinating: the Francisco Q. Sanchez Elementary School, located in the tiny coastal village of Humåtak in southwestern Guam.
