  2. Research Your House in Kane County

    May 24, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Gail Borden Public Library, Computer Training Room

    A house is historical in relation to its location, date of construction, architectural style, architect, and ownership. House research is a fascinating combination of legal, architectural, genealogical and cartographical studies. Seeking information about the history of a house is becoming faster and easier as governmental agencies make records available on the Internet. In this hands-on seminar, you can begin to look up information online about your house. Presenter Rebecca Hunter has been engaged in historical architectural research since 1997.
