I move around a lot, and have

I move around a lot, and have rented a lot of houses along the way. I'm always hoping that while i'm out looking for houses for rent, I'll see a sign, look up and have a historical home staring me right in the face. Alas, no such luck thus far. But they sure are fun to learn about. When I was younger, my Dad lived in a early 20th century church in Connecticut, so spending my summers there gave me the historical house bug. Denver is on my list of places to live next, so even if I end up in a apartment, I look forward to checking out the historical homes in the area or a lecture series at the library.
