LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas has identified the five most endangered properties in the state.

The list announced Thursday includes three sites in Hot Springs, another in Little Rock and one with statewide locations. The Arkansas’ Most Endangered Places Program began in 1999 to raise awareness of Arkansas’ historic properties and the dangers they face.

Mound sites throughout Arkansas were added to the list this year. The mounds represent native cultures of Arkansas but are being threatened by looters as well as real estate and residential development.

The Central High School Neighborhood Historic District in Little Rock was also added to the list, along with downtown Hot Springs. The group also identified the John Lee Webb House and the Thompson Building, both in Hot Springs, as endangered.
