Historic Building Database Coverage Map






Database Map
The Historic Building Database pages get larger almost by the day. As of today, there are 1,193 buildings on the various HBD pages, the vast majority of those being residential structures. As far as I’m aware, this is the largest single collection of before and after photos of historic buildings ever assembled on any one site. The new map, linked above, shows current street coverage of these buildings. The map itself is not fully updated, but over the next few days, it should be completed. Afterwards, it will be continuously updated weekly to reflect new streets covered in the database. Eventually, I hope to add links to the map to the buildings themselves, but that may be a while in future.

Historic Building Database Major Updates!




A multi-day library research trip has been fruitful! I gathered enough new information to create 3 new pages: Short North, South Side and West Side. While some of the entries were just moved from the mixed Other page, among the currently 125 homes featured on the 3 new pages, there are more than 2 dozen completely new homes added. There are many more coming to all 6 of the current residential pages.
In addition, many of the previously-added homes were updated with better photos and links that allowed for larger images when clicked on, so details are clearer than ever. Many also received updated histories.
Neighborhoods that previously had no featured homes that now do include German Village and the Hilltop.

A great example of the many new homes included in the new South Side page, this one in German Village.
