Hunting Down Your Home's History

February 2000

Maybe there aren't any ghosts in your house but what about secrets? Uncovering the secrets - perhaps even the original owners - of This Old House requires a lengthy search through library archives and legal documents. In your quest, you become a detective of sorts, tracing a time line into the past.

In fact, with a little effort, patience, and luck, it may be possible to place your property in the history of early Denver and discover revealing insights into your neighborhood's past. If you're particularly fortunae, you may find old blueprints or photographs of your domicile back in the day.
