The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Nature’s springtime renewal seems particularly poignant this year with the troubles of the world so dark and foreboding. May nature’s annual regeneration inspire hope for renewal in all those facing war and illness.
I took this photo during a visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Visiting historic house museums can be a great way to get inspiration for your own house project. The more immersive experience of visiting a historic village or city museum, like Colonial Williamsburg, is even better.
Seeing multiple houses along with stores, workshops, and streetscapes makes it easier to understand historic houses in the context of the time they were built. If you’re fortunate, you will see restoration work in progress and be able to talk to the people doing the work.
Most of these wonderful sites are planning to reopen this year if they haven’t already. Many are struggling financially after losing more than a year’s revenue from visitors due to the pandemic. Please consider visiting and supporting these amazing historic sites as they reopen to the public.
In the meantime, you can gain inspiration and information for your project in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
