Just to recap what's up:
- I am 95% sure the house was built between May 1907 and February 1909
I am 100% sure of the developer/realty company for my two-block development
I am 50% sure the developer built our house
I cannot seem to find confirmation!
Yesterday I found a directory of the maps for my town. There are only 2.
- 1906 was available online: my house doesn't exist, which I already knew. (I have the 1906 survey that was done for the development, and they didn't extend the water mains for the development until May 1907 at the earliest.)
1938 is only available in print: so I'd have to ask at the library. But it really won't help me with the architect/builder or a firm build date.
The local library only has directories starting with 1925. So, no help there. Not sure if a larger county library would have more. But I have a complete list of everyone who lived in the house already. And I know when the first owner moved in.
Water and/or Electricity.
I had no idea that they might have info on builders. I'll definitely give that a try!
Keep the brilliant ideas coming!!
