Back in 1996, when our web master Matt Knowles was first introduced to the World Wide Web, he was amazed by the amount of information that was freely available. Back then the Internet was a community, not the commercial monster it has since become. He wanted to give back to this virtual community, and decided that the Internet needed a good list of historic homes that were open to the public.
For over a decade, Matt compiled and maintained this list hardcoding the HTML. Matt is currently in the process of porting the information into the database and this will take some time. If you would like to help out please contact Matt at email address below. During this conversion process it may take some time before new entries show up. During the conversion, some states will be pulled from the database, and some are hard coded. States that still need to be converted are marked with an asterisk. New listings submitted for those states will not appear until the entire list for that state is converted over.
Please understand that the Victorian Preservation Association does not manage these museums. If you have questions about a specific museum, please contact that museum directly.
