Have you ever wondered about the history of your house, apartment, church or other building? When was it built? Why was it built? Who owned it? What happened to the people who lived there? Or, my perennial favorite question as a child, does it have any secret tunnels or cubbyholes? Whether you’re looking for documentation for historic status or are just plain inquisitive, tracing a property’s history and learning about the people who have lived there can be a fascinating and fulfilling project.

Join the Multnomah Historical Association to learn how to research the architectural and historical facts about your home. Cosponsored with Multnomah County Library.
