According to the city of Cape Girardeau, the list was adopted by the Cape Girardeau Historic Preservation Commission to promote public awareness of buildings and structures that have historic value and are believed to be at risk of being lost due to deterioration and/or imminent demolition.

Some buildings, like the Broadway Theatre, have been on the list for several years.

Located at 805 Broadway, the Broadway Theatre was condemned in April 2021 after a fire destroyed the roof and damaged the upper story of the front section.

According to the city, a nonprofit corporation acquired the building with plans to repurpose it. However, no progress was made and the city is moving forward with soliciting bids for demolishing the entire building.
