Do you dream of living in a piece of history? Historic homes are on the market throughout the country, from rustic former farmhouses to red brick mansions dating back to the 1700s. 

More than 2,300 historic districts exist in the United States, many with charming older homes that come loaded with history. For many home buyers, it’s the appeal of the neighborhood as well as the home itself that proves a selling point.

But historic homes do come with costs. You could be restricted when it comes to making structural changes to the property. And historic elements of the home such as windows and shutters may be costly to replace if they must be replaced in kind.

Protecting history

If you’re thinking of investing in a historic home, be sure to get a thorough home inspection. Watch out for things like lead paint and structural issues. You may want to become familiar with the Standards for Rehabilitation, a document from the Secretary of the Interior that lays out how to restore an older home. 

While it requires some extra legwork, owning a slice of history can be very rewarding. You can protect your own community’s history and invest in a worthwhile project that preserves the legacy of a home and region.

In the meantime, check out these 51 historic homes scattered across the country.
