How to Research Your Historic Home

by Aaron Klimek

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Central Gardens Neighborhood Association. This year we are celebrating by exploring the history of our great neighborhood with highlights from various historic records of our city.

Every old house has a story to tell. This month we provide internet links and direction on where to get the history of your home. You can find old photos, maps and lists of who has lived in your home. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list but these repositories should give you a wealth of information on your home.

Since I have been through this process researching our own home, I will use our home on Linden as an example of how to find information.

Stories of a Neighborhood by Barbara B. Viser is a history of the neighborhood featuring profiles of prominent residents, neighborhood institutions, and modern and period photos. Buy your copy here.
