Every Home has a Story to Tell

In-House Research, a project sponsored by the Shorewood Historical Society, provides assistance to Shorewood residents interested in researching the history of their home. Telephone directories, newspapers, pictures, maps and permits provide information about former owners, neighborhood development and physical changes to the house. Many resources can be accessed online. To begin your research, click on "Shorewood Homes" on menu above. Contact the Historical Society to request home research assistance: shorewoodhistory@yahoo.com

Donations to the In-House project, such as pictures, abstracts and house history that has been handed down to successive home owners, are welcome and encouraged. We are particularly looking for pictures of houses taken before 1960. Check old photos for individual house or block pictures. If requested, we can scan the donation and return the original to the owner. Contact the Society by email to arrange donation logistics.
