SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A preservationist group has released its list of the 10 most endangered historic places in Illinois.

Landmarks Illinois announced its list Tuesday morning. It includes Chicago’s Uptown Theatre, a U.S. Marine hospital in Galena that was built in 1859 and a more than 125-year-old primary school in Otterville.

The group has released its annual list since 1995 hoping to call attention to the threatened sites.

Landmarks Illinois officials say that since it started the list designation, more than a third of the places have been saved.

The list also includes Hotel Belleville, a 1931 art deco building on the public square in the southern Illinois city. It also lists the Old Millstadt Water Tower.

This year there’s a special 11th item, the Federal Historic Tax Credit Program.
