America's Most Endangered Places or America's Most Endangered Historic Places is a list of places in the United States that the National Trust for Historic Preservation considers the most endangered.

Many of the locations listed by the Trust have been preserved, with there being some argument about how important the Trust's listing has actually been to their preservation. However, there have been notable losses, such as 2 Columbus Circle, which underwent significant renovations, and the original Guthrie Theater, demolition of which was completed in early 2007.

First released in 1987, the number of sites included on the list has varied, with the most recent lists settling on 11.
