New to the site. Just purchased my first old home. Cant seem to figure out a build date or style. Mid 1920s? The land owner in the early 20s had multiple homes on over 150 acres and my house was one of them, so investigating tax records has been a nightmare. I have a land deed from 1926 but only describes the parcel/lot. Formed concrete block foundation. Built in an originally rural/farm area. Is this considered a foursquare? Possibly a kit home? Its all new to me; any help is appreciated.

Search for Sanborn Fire insurance maps. I did this and was able to accurately pinpoint when my house showed up on the map and how my neighborhood was built up.

BTW I'm in Elyria by the high school.
