How can someone know if their house is already in the historic home list?
Hello Marilia. I have a published list from 2005 and I dont think much has changed. You can send an email with your address and I will check. I dont think there is any list online that is maintained. The easiest way to verify would be to call the city planning department. They are the ones who maintain the “City of Vallejo Inventory List of Architecturally and Historically Significant Buildings”. I may be able to offer you a bit more assistance with this if you send me a private message. Thanks, Chris
I always thought that my Tudor home might be a historic home. Recently, my children found your sight and saw a picture of our home.
Can you please tell me if my home is on the list? How can I send you a private message?
