Which Cities Have the Most Historical Homes?

July 10, 2020

Some homes have a rich history that dates back centuries. Thousands of historical homes built between the late 1500s and early 1900s are still standing in the U.S. and are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Where are you most likely to find one of these treasures? Homes.com recently analyzed 50 of the oldest or most historic cities in the U.S., and then ranked each city based on their total number of registered historical homes per capita and where the percentage of historical homes was highest.

Researchers uncovered that some cities tend to be a haven for historic homes. They also located homes that date back hundreds of years. For example, one of the oldest is a home in Key West, Fla., that dates back to 1521 and later became a home to Earnest Hemingway. A home in St. Augustine, Fla., once was owned by Spanish admiral Pedro Menéndez de Aviles and dates back to 1565.
