House History Options
If you are wondering about a house history for your home, and you did not find one in our data base, Historic Salem, Inc. offers the following two options.
Coming Soon! An option to submit your own research for approval and a plaque, including a DIY Guide kit.
If you are interested in this option reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deed Chart (Tier 1 House History)
This option includes a deed search that traces ownership of the house and determines and/or confirms the original or approximate building date and owner (and architect when applicable).
A Full House History (Tier 2 House History)
This option includes a full house history that traces ownership of the house, determines and/or confirms original or approximate building date, owner, and architect (when applicable), and provides a social narrative of previous occupants (occupations, children, heritage, etc.) and contextual history (i.e., what was going on in Salem or the neighborhood during the house’s existence).
*We are sad to note the passing of our long-time house plaque artisan. Bob Leonard was an artist and a gentleman. He also provided us an incredible price that we knew we could not expect to find in the current market. We are pleased that our new supplier will offer a high-quality product and have adjusted the price of this product.
Historic Salem, Inc. is in the process of reviewing and expanding the existing House History and Plaque program and reserves the right to change product descriptions and pricing at the discretion of the organization.
