Wouldn’t you like to know who built your house, the names of all the owners throughout the years, their children, their occupation, when they planted that big tree in the backyard, why they put on that addition, what colors they painted the house, and why in God’s name did they ever paint that chestnut woodwork white!!!!!
Life happens, and if only those walls could talk! If you only knew earlier that those holes in the woodwork you repaired where from bullets and that low area in the garden you just filled in is where the bodies are buried. Maybe this is an extreme case but maybe not.
I am happy to announce a new webpage has been added to the OldHouseGuy website.
This page will outline how to document your history and further research the history of your house, its residents, and understand the importance to do this now.
