Tell Us Your Story

Houses and buildings help to tell the rich, varied stories of communities.

With the Tell Us Your Story history-sharing program, HWF is striving to learn more about our old buildings (built before 1945) and the people who care for them. We are creating a robust panorama of our built history, and you are part of that picture!

HWF’s Tell Us Your Story index will be different from our historic plaque database, and different from the National Register listings, too. While those databases are invaluable, they capture small segments of our communities. Our goal is to create a more complete picture of the built history where we live and work in the three counties HWF serves, gathering details about ALL old structures.

Complete this 5-minute survey, below, and help HWF tell the unique stories of local history and home.
