Researching Your Historic Oak Park House

Finding the history of your house and the land on which it sits can be both entertaining and rewarding. It can help you understand your building’s part in Oak Park’s history and may inform future preservation or restoration efforts. Using the resources on this page should help you find information including:

  • Who built the house (owner, architect, builder)
  • Who has owned the property through the years
  • Who has lived in the house and information about their families and businesses
  • What the property has been worth
  • In some cases, historic photographs of your house
