The Gateway Arch has landed on a list of Most Endangered Monuments.
The Arch is one of five American monuments on the list complied by the World Monuments Fund, an organization dedicated to saving historic landmarks. According to a spokesman for the group, the Arch is at risk because of corrosion, current economic trends, and decreased government funding for national monuments.
The World Monuments Fund was established in 1965. 85 percent of money donated to the fund goes directly to preservation projects.
