A preservation group has released a list of the seven most endangered historic places in Chicago.The list includes the terminal at the former Meigs Field and the Michael Reese Hospital campus.

The group, Preservation Chicago, is recommending that the city grant landmark status to the Meigs terminal.

The members would like the buildings on the Michael Reese campus converted to residential use as part of the city's plans to use the site for an Olympic village.

The list also includes the old Chicago Motor Club building on Wacker Place and old fashioned wood windows throughout the city.
