House History Project

We are inviting interesting stories about your houses in Squirrel Hill, their histories, styles, locations or anything else that you can share.
Initial submissions of no more that a few paragraphs should be sent to, with House History in the Subject Line (please do not identify house by exact numerical address, but instead create an identity like: “Feree Street” or “Murdoch Farms, Fair Oaks.” By making submission, you are granting SHHS permission to include this information in future newsletters and to create a posting on our HOUSE HISTORY PROJECT site.

We  encourage all who contribute to expand their initial submission through their own individual searches, and by using information obtained with tools like those found on our HOUSE HISTORY RESOURCES.  As an all-volunteer organization, we are not able to conduct research for individuals, but will provide support and resources.

This is an ongoing project with no deadline. You may either email submissions of your House History to our address above, or submit  online at House History Project Submission. Everyone is invited to react to house histories by posting comments.
