An updated Top 10 list of La Crosse’s most endangered buildings has been released by the Heritage Preservation Commission.
New to the list include both Lincoln and Hogan schools. Lincoln is closing at the end of August.
Also new to the list is Glory Days Bar, which is a combination of an old gas station and a beverage store. Glory Days received some damage last year when the India Curry House next door burned down.
It’s the third annual list calling attention to buildings that need repairs or might be in danger of demolition.
Holdovers from the 2022 endangered list include two buildings on one block of 4th Street, a group of three Vine Street homes now used for student housing and the Rublee-Washburn house on Ferry Street, dating back to the 1850s.
Meanwhile, one of the buildings on the 2022 list, the Casino Bar on Pearl Street, is in the midst of being renovated and no longer on the list.
