We are fortunate to live in a region with so many historic properties. If you are a new owner of an antique house then you are probably interested in learning more about the history of that property. Here are some resources:
1. Real Estate Listing Agent
Listing agents often have information in their files.
2. Previous Owner(s)
Usually willing to share their knowledge.
3. Neighbors of Long Standing
Often have information about the area.
4. Town Historian
For example, Salisbury, CT has Mrs. Jean McMillen.
6. Town & County Clerks
They can provide maps, deeds, etc.
7. Public Libraries
