UIC's Flame points out that the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois has recently released its annual Chicagoland Watch List, this year including buildings ranging from the Israel-Samuel A.M.E. Zion Church to the Main Post Office. Begun in 2002, the list (archives here) advocates for the protection of historic properties in the metro area. How can you help? Click on any of the listed sites to learn details about relevant officials to contact, be they aldermen or city commissions.
