On Tuesday, the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation released its 2014 list of "Places in Peril" from across the state.
Two Central Georgia locations made the top 10 list from the Trust.
In Pulaski County, the Hawkinsville Firehouse is a "Place in Peril." The firehouse is an important part of Hawkinsville's own historic district and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The firehouse has been vacant since 1975 and suffers from deterioration due to neglect and maintenance that has been put off repeatedly, largely due to a lack of funding.
In Dodge County, the Chauncey School is another place in peril. According to the Georgia Trust, the Chauncey school was built in 1914 on a budget of $10,000. It had six classrooms, a state-of-the-art science laboratory and an auditorium.
Despite fundraising efforts from Chauncey citizens, the Trust says that the town has fallen upon hard economic times and can no longer sustain preservation of the school building.
The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation says its mission with 'Places in Peril' is "to raise awareness about Georgia's significant historic, archaeological and cultural resources, including buildings, structures, districts, archaeological sites and cultural landscapes that are threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy."
