ABOUT

Virginia's Top 10 Endangered Artifacts program identifies significant, endangered artifacts at libraries, archives, and museums throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and Washington D.C. on an annual basis. Recognized artifacts are kept on the "endangered" list until which time the threat to the artifact has been resolved. This site serves to document the artifacts that have been designated over the course of the program.
