CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The last remaining structure of a resort in Greenbrier County is among five properties on Preservation Alliance of West Virginia's 2013 endangered properties list.

Built in 1845, the Blue Sulphur Springs Pavilion about 9 miles north of Alderson was once part of a resort where the first mud baths in the U.S. were administered.

The alliance says the pavilion hasn't been maintained for years and is deteriorating.

Also on the list is 'The Westly,' a Sears Kit House in Lewisburg. This style of home was one of the most popular sold through the Sears, Roebuck and Company mail order catalogs. The home was delivered in over 10,000 labeled pieces with assembly instructions.

It was constructed in 1924-25.
