Old Family Homes

Homes in which generations lived and loved

Humanity's first homes may have been in trees, in caves, or even made from holes dug in the ground. But these homes have evolved from huts to elaborate structures that reflect the personality of the families who lived in them.

From sod houses to farms to plantation houses to mansions, our shared past is reflected in the homes shown on these pages. Is your family home shown here?
