Do you like to do research? The Denver Public Library offers you the ability to learn about the history of your house.
If you’re interested in your home’s past, who lived there, if any businesses were there, or what it looked like then plan a day at the DPL main branch.
The helpful librarians can find copies of original building permits, some blueprints and ownership records. The library sometimes has early photographs of a building or the neighborhood and detailed information on previous owners.
Spend an afternoon and have fun learning about your house! A friend once said to me, “You never really own your home, you’re borrowing it from the next people to live there.” That sentiment becomes reality when you learn the history of your home’s past residents.
