History of Your Home
Have you ever wondered about the people who lived in your house before you?
When I moved into my 100-year-old house in the Hawthorne District, I knew that it had a name: the Honeycomb Hideout. I noticed that someone had spray-painted lyrics to a Smiths song on a wall. I had also heard that the band Sunset Valley used to practice in the basement. I haven't verified the rumors or uncovered half of the mysteries that my house holds, but I did stumble upon an abandoned bee hive behind a tiny attic door.
Are you curious about the mysteries — both structural and personal— of your house? What rumors have you heard, confirmed or dispelled about the building that you live in?
The Architectural Heritage Center is holding a workshop next month to teach people how to research the answers to those questions.
