There are three options for locating a Drake Neighborhood historic property:

  • Keyword search - Type your search into the form at the upper right corner of any page on this site
  • Guided browsing - Browse through key information like resident, street, and building type
  • Map search - (not yet active) Find a property or properties using the online map application

Dig through your photos, locate your abstract, and do historic research from home!

Anyone can add historical information, stories, old photos, and documents relating to Drake homes! Sign up for an account to participate in building our historical knowledge about the Drake Neighborhood by adding information to the public record.

Help identify unknown buildings - You can add and link information from the comfort of your own home, no experience or historic knowledge required!

Are you interested in neighborhood history? We have several opportunities to get involved with this research project:

  • Help input historic data to this website
  • Help identify buildings in historic photos
  • Organize an "abstract party" at your house
  • And much more!

Contact a project organizer for more information.
