Questions about your house

These are just some of the questions that you may want to know about your house:  

•  What was there before my house was built?

•  When was it built?

•  Who built it?

•  Who designed it?

•  Who owned it?

•  Who has lived in my house?

•  When was it altered?  

For the most part, all of these questions can be answered about houses in the garden city by looking at the archives at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies.  You may be able to think of more!!
