Free Public Program "Are Your Walls "Talking?""

Have you wondered about the history of your home - the architect, the builder, the previous owners and its age? If you are, join the Chatham Historical Society on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 2:30 p.m. at the Library of the Chathams to discover how to dig into the history of your house.

“What is the History of Your House? It is Easy to Find... If You Know Where to Look and What to Look For!” is the program designed to give you step-by-step instructions in how to unearth information about your home. Learn how computers, old newspapers, libraries and local archives can lead you to the discovery of your homes past. There is so much information just waiting to be discovered.

Your house is much more than its architectural style. It is also about the lives of the people that lived there and the architect who designed it - was he famous?, and the builder - was he local?  Most important of all - who were the residents from first to present?  Your home contributes to the rich architectural fabric of the community.

Learn how you can find out how the people associated with your home contributed to the social fabric and the development of the neighborhoods we call home.

You’ll also hear stories from other local homeowners who completed the research of the history of their homes.  All of whom found the research fun and rewarding.  Adopt-A-House programs presented by homeowners are one of the Society’s most well attended events! So please join us and learn how to research your homes past! 

Refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome to attend this free public program.  www.chathamnjhistoricalsociety.org for information.  The Library of the Chathams is located at 214 Main Street in Chatham and the program will be held on the lower level.

July 13, 2018

To the Editor,
