The Dani McCulloch House History Program (formely known as the Adopt-A-House Program) provides guidance to residents who wish to learn how to research the history of their houses. The chairperson of Adopt-A-House is Helen Ann Rosenfeld. Many homeowners, after completing the required research, have worked with the Historical Society to create informative programs which have been presented to members of the Chatham Historical Society and the invited public. Helen Ann provides assistance and guidance to interested residents.
Upon completion of the research as outlined in the Adopt-A-House packet, researchers receive a certificate indicating the Chatham Historical Society's appreciation and the significance of their contribution to recording the history of Chatham. Additionally, those who have completed their research will be given the option to purchase a recognition marker through the Historical Society, suitable for displaying on, or in, their home. The Plaque Program was initiated in 2010 as a spin-off from the Adopt-A-House program. Click here for more information about the Plaque Program.
