Anybody know how to use the website?

Don't think I've ever had to check, but got two FHA foreclosures last week, both over a century old. I'm sure neither are on there but thought I might have a look.

Both are not within any zoning districts.

I type in an address on the Register site and it spews back pages and pages of links to random stuff from documents, to images, to videos. Gotta be an easier way.

Not sure about your area, but check within the Town Historic District 1st; there may be more about municipal restrictions; in my area each Town has different requirements and some have a Town Charter; some have Deed requirements put in play years ago.

They are a lot of work and here, require a premium; remember doing one a few years back that had been In Family for 300 years, there were some specifics within the Deed that are now and will forever be locked in place. They are, generally very interesting to work on, but research needs expanding.

Good Luck

Many homes in my market are well over 200 years old. The local (in my case) Independent city will know if it is on the national register.

I have a home in my neighborhood that was built prior to the Revolutionary war. There are several others that pre-date the same time period and are scattered around several cities. One of them was owned by the ancestors of a regular poster on this forum. My son appraised that a couple of years ago. Still has the sword marks in the original wood door to the house. I did one built in 1825, added on to in the early 1900's and again in the 1950's. The original owner is buried nxt to the garage.
