Tracing Your Home’s History

Unlocking the secrets of your home’s history.

Learning about old houses is one of the best ways to connect with our collective past. If you own one, learning about its genesis—and the generations that have called it home—can be one of the most intriguing journeys you’ll ever take.

Are you curious about the history of your house?  Who lived there?  What style is it?  Where would you go to find out about this information?  Well, look no further.  This free Sharon Historical Society program will give you all of the clues you need to research your home’s history.

Don’t know a Dutch Colonial from a Cape Cod or a Chicago Worker’s Cottage from a California Bungalow? You don’t have to be an architectural expert to determine your home’s age by merely looking at its major features. Compare its size, silhouette, layout, roof type, building material, and the placement of its doors and windows to definitive examples of major architectural styles.  Where can you go to research documents on your house?  We will cover this and a lot more in this program.

Historian and Sharon Historical Society President Ron Ketelsen will take you on a step-by-step process to learn more about the history of your home.  A question-and-answer session will follow afterward.

This is a free program - However, voluntary donations are greatly appreciated to support our non-profit community programs. Your donation helps to support the Sharon Historical Society so we can continue to provide quality historic programs such as this one. Donations can be made on the "Registration" tab.
