SPRINGFIELD - The one-time Chicago home of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters and a 19th century hotel in Quincy are among the 10 most endangered historic places in Illinois.
That's according to the nonprofit Landmarks Illinois, which announced the list Tuesday in Springfield. The organization works to protect historic properties.
On this year's list are several of Chicago's movable bridges that are scheduled to be replaced with wider fixed bridges. Also listed as endangered are community mausoleums that are deteriorating in Beecher, Roodhouse and other towns.
Rounding out the list are Gage House, a pre-Civil War home in Winnetka; a former orphanage in Springfield; Peoria's Madison Theater; Fox Lake's Mineola Hotel; the Miner's Institute in Collinsville; the Muddy Waters home in Chicago; Quincy's Newcomb Hotel and West Chicago's Wiant House.
