The most most endangered historic places in Texas range from a former county jail to a drive-in theater. The list of seven was released Thursday at an Austin news conference by Preservation Texas Inc., a nonprofit group that raises money and awareness for saving historic places. They include: Austin Women's Club in Austin; Brazos Drive-In Theatre in Granbury; Herff Farm in Boerne; downtown Austin's historic assets; Old Llano County Jail, known as "Red Top," in Llano; San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site in La Porte; and the Swenson Swimming Pool and Bathhouse in Spur.

Preservation Texas has been releasing a list of endangered historic places since 2004.
