“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if anyone out there knew a good way to find historic information about a house. I’m about to move into a farm house from 1923, and I’d love to find out if it was a model kit offered by Sears, etc like so many around here are. It would be great to have some old ads or blueprints for it. Even some vintage photos of the house or street would be awesome to get.

Any ideas?”

In the past I think some have recommended checking out the Washingtonia room at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Any other suggestions?
