    As the old adage goes, the more you know, the more power you have. Here in Cleveland Heights and in neighboring Shaker Heights, there are lots of old homes with rich histories and stories behind them. Doing a deed trace on your home can yield a lot of interesting history that homeowners can advertise about their homes.

    The first step in compiling a house history is to identify the era in which the structure was built. With the help of an architecture book or two, most home owners can discern a core style—even among a century or two of renovations and additions—by examining the silhouette of the house and its layout, as well as the style of the windows, doors, and other features. A mansard roof, for example, may be of the Second Empire style of the late 19th-century, while a hip roof might indicate a Queen Anne house built a decade later. But keep in mind that while looking at visible features reveals a lot, there may be a hidden chapter to the story.
