Discovering Your House’s Story
Santa Clara County, California

Every house has a story and this guide, created by Kay Gutknecht for SCCHGS, is designed to help you discover it. You can download the document to your own computer for easy access.

Be aware that this document is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to finding every possible fact about your house. Rather it guides you to key sources of information that can help you build a foundational understanding of your house’s history. Dozens, if not hundreds, of other resources are out there, and as you dive into your search, likely you will be enticed to follow obscure or neglected paths to other pots of gold.

Enjoy the journey.
