ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) -  A couple of local spots made Georgia's list of the Top 10 places in Peril.
They are the Zion Church in Talbotton, GA and the Martin House in Columbus, GA.

Zion church is on the list for neglect and lack of funding to maintain it.  We are told there is significant wood rot on the outside and the need for weathering repairs.

The Martin House  is on the list for the lack of maintenance and deterioration.  It was built in the 1950's and sits in Midtown Columbus.

Georgia's Trust program seeks to identify historic sites threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance.
