An Introduction to Researching Your House


Many people entering the doors of our Research Library & Archives are searching for information about their home. When was it built? What did it look like originally? Why does it look the way it does now? What can I do to preserve it? Who built it and who lived in it? This workshop will offer an introduction to some resources and tools that will help anyone discover a little more about their home.

The workshop will take place in Person on December 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm. It will introduce attendees to the fundamental tools you’ll need to start seeing your house in a new light and examine some on-line resources for house history research.
