Compiling the history of a house can seem overwhelming, particularly if a house has existed for a long time. To make the process easier, we’ve developed a series of House History Forms to guide you through capturing various aspects (inside, outside, surroundings, inhabitants) of your house’s history.

The forms (eight pages’ worth) are included in one pdf document at this link:

They may be freely copied for noncommercial use. While we imagine the forms will be handy for individuals studying their homes, they could also be used by an organization that wants to gather the histories of a number of homes (i.e. an organized project to collect house histories by a community or historical society).

If you aren’t sure where to start in researching your house’s history, read  House History How-To and House History: Some Assembly Required.
