A Lost Treasure...
What is an architectural treasure?
An architectural treasure can be any type of architecture, residential or commercial, a unique neighborhood or a district. In short, the structure or area must be architecturally significant for the period and place in which it was built, it must be at least fifty years old, and/or have had a prominent designer, resident or other unique function or distinguishing character.
