Sheldon Jackson campus tops "endangered" list

SITKA, ALASKA The campus of the former Sheldon Jackson college in Sitka has made the list of the state’s twelve most endangered historic properties.
The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation publishes the list annually.
The designation came just ahead of a recent decision by the Sitka planning commission to approve a new plat for the campus that leaves most of the National Historic Landmark intact.
