BALTIMORE (AP) — Preservation Maryland says a Baltimore building that was the first U.S. structure designed as a museum is on its list of the state’s most endangered places.

The group said Friday that the Peale Museum Municipal Building on Holliday Street is among 11 sites on its 2011 list.

The Peale Museum dates to 1814. The building also served as Baltimore’s first City Hall and as a school for African-American children. It has stood vacant since 1997.

Other sites on the list include the skipjack, “Dee of St. Mary’s,” in St. Mary’s County and the Anchor of Hope Cemetery in Dorchester County.

The list also includes the Perpetual Building, a piece of modernist architecture in Silver Spring that is in danger of being demolished.
