Earlier in the summer Free Press carried the story 'Peg history at their doorsteps, about the growing interest people have in the houses that they live in.
House and building 'social' histories are something that I've spent a long time researching for my blogs and for individuals. You can see examples here, here, here.
Now, I never know if I'm going to find a war hero, famous musician or prohibition 'speakeasy' at the location but, more often than not, at least a couple of interesting people or events pop out.
If you are interested in having your house or building history looked into I am 'for hire' ! Drop me a line at cassidy -at- mts.net and we can discuss.
