FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) - Some buildings in Flemington are on the list of the National Trust for Preservation’s “most endangered” historic places in America.

The buildings include the Union Hotel, which housed people involved in the 1935 Lindbergh baby kidnapping case, known as the “trial of the century.”

The National Trust says the buildings would be demolished under a development proposal.

The National Trust, a private nonprofit, describes the annual list released Wednesday as a way of identifying “important examples of the nation’s architectural and cultural heritage that are at risk of destruction or irreparable damage.”

Being listed by the trust as an endangered place can mobilize grassroots and political support along with funding for preservation.
