If you had a million dollars….

…..and you had to spend it on the preservation of a historic site in the Bay Area, which place would you choose? Using an American-Idol style online vote, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express are inviting the public to vote, with the winning site receiving $1 million. Votes can be cast online at the Partners in Preservation site or at kiosks at Peet’s coffee houses in the Bay Area. Voters are allowed one vote a day.

Some of the sites in San Francisco:
* Haas-Lilienthal House
* Japanese YWCA building, designed by Julia Morgan
* Murphy Windmill, near the southeast corner of Golden Gate Park
* Bayview Opera House
