House History

House History | Newspapers

Newspapers and magazines can provide a glimpse of social period and local history. Check newspapers for 'calls for tender' for the construction of houses and auction notices. Look up suburbs, streets, full addresses and, once known, the names of the people who have owned the property. Search for the lot and plan number of the property. Narrow down the search by town and year.

In addition, contemporary newspaper articles would at times provide commentary about some building projects.

Shoalhaven Libraries holds early newspapers on microfilm. Historic newspapers may also be accessed online via Trove, the discovery platform of the National Library of Australia.
