Background

Houses were first thought of as historic rather than just old or interesting, during the early 19th century. Government protection was first given during the late 19th century.

Historic homes are often eligible for special grant awards for preservation. What makes a historic home significant is often its architecture or its significance to the culture or history of an area. There are some organizations that offer services to research the history of your home, others such as ThatsMyOldHouse.com [1] provide a respository for you to add your own memories and history of your home to the site, or search other's history.

Historic homes may still be inhabited, and should not be confused with historic house museums.
