Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A former school, library, train depot, bank, diner, museum and active church are included in West Virginia's latest endangered properties list.

The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia announced this year's list Thursday.

The properties include a 1915 mission/spanish revival style train depot in Berkeley Springs, a home built by George Washington's brother in 1780 and a library built in 1834 in Greenbrier County.

Historic preservationist Lynn Stasick says all of the properties are listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

She works with communities to help rehabilitate historic properties through a program funded by private donations and a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
