When I worked as the Jerome Historical Society director, we had numerous people that would come in seeking information about the home they just purchased in Jerome, wondering who it used to belong to, what its history was. Four years later, I had a thought. What if I created an online site/forum where anybody and everybody could go and post stories about the house they grew up in, or even a house they have knowledge about, so that others can use that information for research. That idea finally came to fruition with our new website - http://www.thatsmyoldhouse.com.
We are really excited about the site and the reponse we have had already. It has only been up less than two weeks and we have had over 2,000 visitors and over 50 people registered.
So tell us your story. You don't have to be a Jerome resident, the site is open to homes throughout the United States. On the About Your House page you will be guided through a series of questions such as what state was your house in, city, what years did you live in it and more.
We hope you enjoy the site and look forward to hearing from you.
