Blank forms are available at the Hour Glass museum and from trustees but it is not necessary to use them. We certainly welcome longer typed essays, several of which we have received. Any bits of information you can pass along, even a few facts scribbled on a napkin, would sure help us a lot. We would like to hear from you even if you are not a society member. Jump to the list of house histories already collected. They are available for perusal at the Hour Glass Museum. Several have been transcribed and are here on the Web. Some of these house histories are not complete. Please do not assume that none of the addresses appearing on the list could benefit from additional details. The Historical Society of Ogden Dunes also has a collection of plans from many of the homes in town, from their original construction and from later renovation projects that we have been cataloging.
We warmly welcome volunteers to help with this project.
