WHAT: Houses with History
WHERE/WHEN: Premieres Tuesday, March 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV
WHO: HGTV will take a fresh look at the fascinating backstories of America’s oldest homes in its popular renovation series Houses with History. In each episode, home preservationist and history buff Mike Lemieux, carpenter Rich Soares and designer Jen Macdonald will team up to save centuries-old properties in and around Plymouth, Massachusetts. Along the way, they will share the homes’ fascinating origins and renovation stories.
The premiere episode will feature the restoration and renovation of an 1800’s historic home in Fairhaven that was originally a potting shed on the Henry Huttleston Rogers estate. The property has a vibrant history associated with its original oil tycoon owner who was a close associate of John D. Rockefeller, benefactor of Helen Keller, and friend of Mark Twain. The new owners love the home’s charming character including unique windows and original hand-carved woodwork, but they will task Mike, Rich and Jen to incorporate modern functionality and design in the kitchen, living spaces and main suite in order to make it their own.
