This Old House Teams Up With PreservationDirectory.com to Find the Best Places to Buy an Old House in the United States and Canada
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 29, 2011
Contact: Tim Cannan (503) 308-0500

Portland, Oregon - As part of its ongoing commitment to the preservation community, PreservationDirectory.com is once again teaming up with This Old House magazine to promote their search for "The Best Old House Neighborhoods" in the United States and Canada. An upcoming issue and Web feature from TOH will feature the 5th annual "Best Old House Neighborhoods" article, which strives to identify affordable-or just plain magnificent-homes in historic neighborhoods and districts across the United States.

According to This Old House Associate Editor, Keith Pandolfi, "The point of this contest is-as it has always been-to familiarize TOH readers with outstanding, sometimes overlooked neighborhoods or towns that have exceptional older houses, and residents working hard to both restore them, and maintain them-for future generations." TOH is looking for 64 (one in each state, one in Puerto Rico, and one in each of Canada's 10 provinces and three territories) to add to its list of Best Old House Neighborhoods. "As always," says Pandolfi, "we're especially interested in overlooked places known for affordable houses that are heavy on architectural details."

In order to most effectively accomplish this search, This Old House and PreservationDirectory.com are actively seeking the help of dedicated preservationists, neighborhood boosters and heritage travelers!  To suggest your historic district, town or city, please submit the following information:
  • The name of the neighborhood, town or district you wish to nominate 
  • A brief history of the area 
  • A brief description of the types of houses available, including architectural styles, the period in which they were built; and the average price range.      
  • A short paragraph on why you think the area deserves to be included on our list. 
  • At least five high-res digital photographs (300 DPI, at about 8.5 by 6.5) of houses, streetscapes and, if possible, neighborhood events.
The top picks, as determined by the This Old House staff, will be published in a future issue of This Old House and will be featured on the homepage of PreservationDirectory.com. Past "winners" include Centre Park Historic District in Reading, PA; Old Louisville, KY; Albany, OR; Washington, GA; Victorian Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY; and Georgetown, TX. 

Please send information outlined above as soon as possible to This Old House Associate Editor, Keith Pandolfi at kpandolfi1970@gmail.com (please note the new email - there is a temporary problem with the previously announced email address).
