Learn to trace the history of your house

The Rochester Historical Commission will present Tracing the History of Your House, featuring local historian, author and librarian Deborah Larsen.

The two-hour workshop on Sunday, March 17 at 2 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library will guide local residents on how to discover more about the history of their home.  The lecture is free but does require a reservation.

Annually the Rochester Historical Commission presents a lecture of historical significance to celebrate the founding of Rochester which took place on March 17, 1817.

“Rochester area has a rich history and many of the homes are equally as interesting,” says Lynn Anderson, chair of the commission’s Historical Marker Committee.  “Most residents don’t know much about their home before they purchased it, especially if it was built before 1901, the year the city of Rochester started recording housing construction.”
