I have just purchased a house in Oceanside, California. It was built in 1926 and has an historic plaque. It is in need of tremendous TLC. I am wonder if anyone knows the best way to find the history of my new house. I would like to restore it as historically correct as possible but am not sure how to begin. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Lori

Jay J posted this in reply to a similar question on this bulletin board:

"Contact your local Preservation Society or Historical Society for info."

Since there is a plaque, your house is probably registered, and I believe you are REQUIRED to submit ANY remodelling changes for review/approval by your local Preservation Society or Historical Society. This can be a problem if you want to update certain aspects of the house including landscaping!

Good Luck

Thanks WallyV! Much appreciated. (Perhaps some day I can return the favor.)

I had a 'second thought'. If there are other restored homes in the area that look 'authentic', your question would be 'nice' way to introduce yourself to them.

Yes, good luck and enjoy your home.
