LANAI CITY ON ENDANGERED LIST
Lanai City is included on a list of the 11 most endangered historic sites in America.Â Lanai City was included on the list released by the National Trust of Historic Preservation.
The 22nd annual list is used to raise awareness of the serious threats facing the nation’s greatest treasures.Â It has also become a tool in the fight to save the nation’s irreplaceable architectural, cultural and natural heritage.
Today, LÄna’i is largely owned by private landowner Castle & Cooke.Â The two-block area that makes up Lanai City’s historic downtown is largely intact, but concerns have been raised by preservationists who hope to save the historic structures that still exist.
