Preserved Architectural Remnants and Ruins
Managed By: Icon Here Piecekeepers
Description:
The waymarks in this category document the locations of building or structure remnants that were saved to be put on display after the building or structure was destroyed or removed. Ruins that have been preserved are also recorded here. If "[show additional information]" is visible below, please click it for the full description.
Expanded Description:
A remnant is a small part or portion that remains after the main part no longer exists*.
A ruin is the remains of a building, city, etc., that has been destroyed or that is in disrepair or a state of decay**.
Preservation is the action or process of protecting, maintaining, and/or stabilizing the existing materials, form, and integrity of a historic place or of an individual component, while protecting its heritage value.*** Preserved remnants and ruins are appropriate for this category.
Rehabilitation is the action or process of making possible a continuing or compatible contemporary use of a historic place or an individual component, through repair, alterations, and/ or additions, while protecting its heritage value.*** Buildings being rehabilitated are not eligible for this category.
Restoration is the action or process of accurately revealing, recovering or representing the state of a historic place or of an individual component, as it appeared at a particular period in its history, while protecting its heritage value.*** Buildings being restored are not eligible for this category.

What makes a good Preserved Architectural Remnant Waymark?
The Remnant or Ruin should be a preserved part of a man-made structure. It must provide an impression of part of the original building's architecture; a decoration, cornerstone, plaque, or small chunk of concrete is insufficient. If the Remnant does NOT provide some hint of the architecture, the waymark will be declined.
If you have a cornerstone remnant, check this category. Your cornerstone might qualify there.

The Remnant or Ruin (or a part of it) should be on display outdoors. It may be part of a new building, mounted, or freestanding. The remnant or ruin does not have to be in its original location.

Please note that abandoned buildings that are not in a state of preservation are not valid for this category. Neither are new objects made from metal salvaged from destroyed buildings.
Ghost Towns and buildings therein should be posted in the Ghost Towns category, not here.
If your Waymarked Remnant goes missing in the real world, do not archive your waymark! Please just adjust the description to reflect that the Remnant is no longer there. Your waymark may be the only lasting documentation that it existed at all!

***from Wikipedia: Historic Preservation Preservation can include both short-term and interim measures to protect or stabilize the place, as well as long-term actions to retard deterioration or prevent damage so that the place can be kept serviceable through routine maintenance and minimal repair, rather than extensive replacement and new construction.
Instructions for Posting a Preserved Architectural Remnants and Ruins Waymark:
At least one original photograph of the Ruin or Remnant is required. For the default picture, try to show as much of the Ruin or Remnant as is practicable with little of the background or surroundings. Additional photos showing the Ruin or Remnant and the surroundings are strongly encouraged. Coordinates should be taken as close to the Ruin or Remnant as possible. For a Remnant, please cite the source of the information that this is a part of a larger structure. If there's a plaque or other documentation on or near the Ruin or Remnant, a closeup photo of that would be appreciated. If there's no information at the site, then a link to a website with some documentation should be provided if it exists.

Please try not to use any special characters in your waymark names, just letters, numbers, commas, apostrophes, and dashes. This makes it easier to load waypoints into software.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Original photographs showing additional views of the Ruin/Remnant or even just its current condition are encouraged. Please describe your visit, especially if no additional photos are available. Did you like the Ruin or Remnant? What prompted you to see the Ruin or Remnant?
