Interviews with nearly three dozen property owners in three Missouri communities revealed that there are threads of similarities that run through their experiences of looking for, purchasing, and renovating or restoring their old houses. In exploring the concepts of appreciation, possession, and affiliation, the author lets the residents of historic districts tell their stories in their own always honest, often funny, and sometimes poignant way.

If you love history, old houses, or just like to watch HGTV, youll enjoy this book.
