My house is older than your house…
Or is it?

Have you ever wondered how old your house actually is? If you have, would you know how to find the exact age without searching through piles of paper records? Maybe we can help.

Historical archaeologist, Myron O. Stachiw, might just have some answers for you. For the past 40+ years, Myron has worked as an educator, historian, archaeologist, architectural historian, historic preservationist, and museum professional. He has been, and continues to be, engaged as an historical consultant to museums, historical agencies, and state and local preservation organizations. Recently, he performed a dendrochronology study on a home in Nahant, and you might be surprised by the results!!
