A historic preservation group has named 16 historic sites across a dozen Ohio counties that it says are most endangered for reasons such as demolition, abandonment and neglect.

The group Preservation Ohio announced the list on Wednesday in Ohio's capitol city.

The Columbus Railway Power and Light Building, the Elam Drake Farm and the Port Columbus Airport Terminal and Control Tower in Columbus are named.

The Dayton Arcade, the former Dayton Daily News building and the Gem City Ice Cream Building are named in southwest Ohio, along with the Sorg Opera House and the Dennison Hotel Building.

Sites in northeast Ohio include the Correll House and McDowell Farmhouse in North Canton, the Stone Train Depot in Ashtabula, the Madison Freight Depot and the Sammel Lyon House in Columbia Station.
