Napa County Landmarks unveils its 2014 list of Ten Threatened Treasures, an annual list that spotlights threatened historic buildings, structures, and features as well as cultural heritage properties such as historic landscapes within Napa County. This year's list highlights at-risk cultural resources due to factors such as deterioration, neglect, erosion, and basic lack of funding.
This year, we are focusing our list on forgotten or unseen treasures, including the Barnett House located in Pope Valley, Historic Stone Walls of Napa County, the John H. McLaren-designed landscape at the Carmelite Monastery, Helios Ranch (Ink House) in Rutherford, Joseph B. Chiles Adobe, an Abandoned House on Sulphur Springs Road, the Man with the Pipe on Monticello Road, Rutherford Station, and forgotten Stone Bridges of Napa County.
To help raise awareness and provide opportunities for the preservation of these amazing historic resources, an exhibit highlighting the Ten Threatened Treasures goes on display at the Goodman Library, 1219 First Street, Napa. An opening reception will take place on March 6th at 5:30pm that the public is welcome to attend. RSVP requested but not required: www.napacountylandmarks.org or call 707-255-1836.
