The National Trust for Historic Preservation is hosting an event on June 6 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the its annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. In addition to announcing its 2012 list of endangered places, the event will include an interactive video and photo exhibit exploring a quarter-century of inspiring preservation stories.

Perhaps of most interest to Borderstan readers, the event will feature “micro talks” by preservationists from across DC, including reps from Dupont Underground, Rainbow History Project, Popularise, CAS Riegler Development Company and Capital Pixel, all of whom will discuss how they’re getting people to see underappreciated places in a new light.

“Preserving Nation,” which will take place at Fathom Creative on 14th Street, is sold out, but keep an eye out the following week for a write-up of the event.
