Buildings

A building with unique architecture, features, or historical or cultural significance can make a great nomination. The submitter should explain the story of the building or what about it in particular is unique. The supporting text should prove why this is an important building worthy of exploration. Referencing historical registries and news articles can be helpful when it comes to verifying your claims.

:+1: This building above is a great example of unique architecture.

Architectural details on buildings like those pictured below may be eligible depending on the specific case that is made. Some cities have a dominant architectural style, and every single building in the area may have features that are in that style. As a result, those features may not be considered unique.

If the ornaments are unique compared to the rest of the buildings, however, or of historic importance, they can be eligible.

:+1: The distinctive buildings above are good examples of architectural features that are unique to their areas.

Ruins

Ruins that are historically significant, preserved for heritage or tourism, and safe to access can be great places to explore. Submitters should provide context and information in their titles, descriptions, and supporting information. Referencing historical registries and news articles can be helpful when it comes to verifying your claims.

Ruins with no sign, but that are well-maintained and safe to access can be considered eligible.

:+1: In the example above, the supporting text provided evidence that these were barracks at an early French fort in Illinois.
