There are a few resources that can help you research your home's history, including Sanborn Maps, Water Tap Records, Block Books, etc.

We have links to some online research guides and resources at:


Some of these resources, are online at sfgenealogy. For example, the 1900 Sanborn Maps, which I believe shows your house. We also have a good collection of links to outside online resources for historic maps, etc. at:


Finally, there are some individuals who do house research for a living. You might want to try a google search for them.

Hope this helps,
