Researching Your Leadville House

Other House Research Ideas

Here are some other ideas to help you learn the history of your house:

  • Ask your realtor
  • Try conducting a title search
  • Ask your neighbors what they know
  • Keep an eye out for clues buried in the back yard, in the attic, in the basement/floors, and in the walls
    • Buried items can tell you a lot about who lived there and when
    • Leadville people have been known to use newspapers as insulation
    • You might find dates or stamps left by the builder
    • You might uncover old wallpaper or paint that can be traced to a specific time period
