The Society for Commercial Archeology announces its request for nominations for the 2012 Falling by the Wayside list of the 10 Most Endangered Roadside Places

January 18, 2012

Guidelines for Nomination

Roadside places eligible for inclusion will be those that fall within the scope of SCA’s stated mission: architectural elements and cultural landscapes related to roadways, highways and road culture, including diners, drive-ins, coffee houses, gas stations, motels, hotels, tourist cabins, motor courts, retail centers, theaters, signage, roadside curiosities and folk environments.

A date range is not pre-established; however a nominated place must clearly express historical and community significance.

It must be demonstrated that the roadside place is threatened or in a trend of deterioration that impacts its future.

We welcome nominations from SCA members and the general public. We request, however, that nominators limit their nominations to no more than three candidates.

To nominate a place to the list, please contact SCA’s Falling by the Wayside committee for a nomination form: sca.endangered@gmail.com. The form must be completed and returned by May 15, 2012.
