WASHINGTON (AP) -- The National Trust for Historic Preservation has put the Grand Canyon, Miami's Little Havana and a former gay nightclub in West Hollywood on its annual list of America's 11 most endangered historic places.

The list, made public late Tuesday night, seeks to bring attention to U.S. sites of architectural, cultural and natural heritage that the National Trust deems at risk due to neglect, development or an uncertain future. The list has been published annually for 28 years.

Here's what's on the trust's 2015 list:

-A.G. Gaston Motel, Birmingham, Alabama, now vacant, which served as a "war room" for civil rights leaders.

-Carrollton Courthouse, New Orleans, now vacant, one of the area's "most significant landmarks outside of the French Quarter," according to the trust.

-Chautauqua Amphitheater, Chautauqua, New York. A plan to demolish and rebuild the aged amphitheater is controversial among preservationists.

-East Point Historic Civic Block, East Point, Georgia, a neglected downtown block.

-Fort Worth Stockyards, Fort Worth, Texas, where a multi-million dollar development is planned.

-The Grand Canyon, which the trust characterized as threatened by "proposals ranging from tourist resorts to mining."

-Little Havana, Miami, potentially threatened by zoning changes and lack of protection for historic buildings.

-Oak Flat, Superior, Arizona, a sacred tribal site, potentially threatened by mining.

-Old U.S. Mint, San Francisco, which the trust described as neglected.

-South Street Seaport, New York. The National Trust said the neighborhood would be altered by development proposals.

-The Factory, West Hollywood, California. A hotel and retail project is proposed for the site of the former gay nightclub.
