Did you ever wonder who lived in your house before you, or maybe before the last owner or 5 or 10 owners before that? Was it merely a house or was it a home? Did they have many children, were they educated in a one-room school house or taught by a tutor at home? Were they rich, poor? Did they have servants? Did they have a farm, horses, chickens, cows? What kind of "real estate" was trendy and sought after in those days of yore?
