Many older homes will have intriguing histories of those who lived there years ago but, unless a home is quite grand, most of this history is lost unless you happen to come across it. A Home Base Holidays member, living in London, has a particularly interesting story about his house (in photo):
“This house was built in 1780 – we found a note behind the panelling from a young man off to start his life in the New World dated 1783 – he went to America.”
How fascinating it would be to find out more about the young man who left his recently built house in London to start a new life so far from home!
