Does Your House have a History?

Vol. XVII No. 3 - FALL 2006

Every house has some history; after all it was built in a community by someone and sold to someone. As an owner of a home built in the late 19th century or the early 20th century in Edgewater, you may want to find out more. The Edgewater Historical Society is here to help you. We will be offering a series of workshops on researching your home’s history on February 3, 10 and 24 at the Edgewater Historical Society Museum, from 10-11:30 a.m. The donation to EHS will be $50 per household. The program will be directed by Kathy Gemperle.

You will have a chance to learn about the architecture of your home. We will also provide some of the details about the subdivision that you live in and how it was developed. If all goes as planned, one workshop day will be spent in the library, where much of the information is available. You will be given a list of resources and places to pursue further information, such as past owners and dates of construction. If you have called us before and found the research daunting, this will be your support group. Sign up as soon as possible – space is limited.

Call the museum and leave your name to reserve a space. Send a check made out to the Edgewater Historical Society to the museum attn: Kathy Gemperle. Or contact us through the web site email and we will get back to you.
