This banner embraces the efforts that were put forth prior to the evolution of historic preservation. The Woodstock Preservation Alliance is the banner which the Preservationists stood under throughout their efforts for the historic preservation of the Woodstock Site. The "Dove Behind the Fence" was a signature logo used by the Woodstock Preservationists to raise awareness and the chain-link fence is symbolic of the fact that the privilege to walk freely on the Woodstock Site, is no longer allowed.

NATIONAL TRUST FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION
THE 11 MOST ENDANGERED HISTORIC PLACES IN AMERICA


The NTHP's Eleven Most Endangered Historic Places list was created in 1988, and is an opportunity to spotlight parts of America's heritage threatened by neglect, deterioration, lack of maintenance, insufficient funds, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy.

Countless places are endangered. One must show how their nomination is representative of other sites facing the same serious threat. Considered are sites and landscapes from a range of backgrounds, from pre-history to the Civil Rights era.

In Summary:
Unfortunately, the Woodstock Site was not listed as one of America's 11 Most Endangered Places for 2003. However, in speaking with the National Trust, we were told that the Woodstock Site was indeed seen as having incredible historic merit that deserved preservation, but at that time, did not meet the criteria of being endangered. It was explained that due to the fact that the Woodstock Site was eligible for the National Register, it had protection at the State and Federal levels under the Section 106 Review process. Because of this protection, the mitigation of development remained a possibility, but the recognition of being endangered, did not.
