HouseHistree’s founder, Mark Meredith, has always been passionate about history, particularly the history behind houses and the stories and people that shape them. Having worked for twenty years in the building industry, he is now a recognized writer and lecturer in both the United States and Europe. In 2019, Mark founded HouseHistree with five key principals in mind:
- Provide a fresh and engaging way for people to expand on their own ancestral stories
- Allow present day custodians to connect with their building’s “alumni”
- Enable those with a shared love of a particular house to connect with one another
- Support the preservation of buildings under threat and retain the memories of those lost
- Help to enrich the existing histories of houses for everyone to learn from or just enjoy
HouseHistree was developed by Sampo.
