The ten markets with the most historic homes [Infographic]

June 8, 2015 by Gina Thelemann in Articles

Whether you're driving around New England or small towns in the Midwest, it's hard not to be amazed by the architecture of historic homes, churches and government buildings.

For this week's infographic, we took a walk down memory lane to find out which markets across the U.S. have the highest percentage of homes built before 1940. We also explored these area's most famous homes, which vary from Tudor mansions to sprawling plantation-style homes to quirky Victorian estates.

Last, we break out the median prices of homes in these markets. While you may not be able to buy any of the houses on the National Historic Registry, markets with high levels of historic homes seem to boast low home prices.
