OHD is NOT a real estate agency nor does it represent homes featured here. Agent or owner contact details are provided with each house post. (Links: About OHD, Registration)

See your home here and want it removed? Enter the address in the contact form below with your request. (DMCA Policy) If you are looking for historical information about your home, it’s helpful to keep it on the site as previous owners could help with your search or provide old photos.

“I’d like my home featured on OHD.” OHD is strict on the type of homes featured. Unless it’s severely original or has interesting architectural features, it will not be added to the site. Agents and owners may submit their listing for consideration but with the understanding that not all homes submitted will be added to the site. I am unable to add by owner listings. If you’d like an idea on what I may say no to: submission guidelines. Note: Unless it’s a rare time capsule, million dollar plus homes do not do well on OHD.

Other ways to share: Find the latest “Link Exchange” post by: 1) going to the home page, look at the top post that says “Link Exchange”, click on the post. 2) Near the top of the page it says “Click here to jump to comment box.”, click. 3) See the comment box? Paste your link (need instructions finding a link/url?) in the comment box. Include the build date, price and city/state with your link. Hit “Post Comment” when ready to submit your comment/share. How will you know if your home will appear on the site? You won’t until you see it in it’s own post. I’m sorry for the long about method but too many people ruined the way OHD use to accept submissions and now I must ask everyone to share in the link exchange. I’m unable to respond to submissions on this page, PLEASE use the link exchange.

Frequent Questions Answered

What happened to my favorites?
The developer that created the favorites plugin I was using abandoned the code long ago. It became a security risk to continue using it and OHD funds could not hire another developer to take over. There also was not enough people using it to justify the cost. I let people know about 2 months in advanced as well as notices on each post page and the favorites page. As of 12/31/18 the favorites will be discontinued forever.

How do I subscribe so I won’t miss a post?
Sign up for the newsletter! The newsletter is sent out at the end of a posting day. Newsletter sign-up can be found on the right side of the home page. Or click here for the 3 day a week newsletter for an email every 3 days instead of every day. I do not recommend following with Facebook or Twitter since they do not show you all new posts.

Why isn’t my comment highlighted? I’m an OHD Supporter!
You MUST be registered (click here to register.) You must be signed in when commenting after you are registered.

I’m signed up for the newsletter but can’t sign into my OHD account.
Signing up for the newsletter doesn’t mean you have an OHD account. If you’ve never gone through the registration page and created an OHD account, it means you don’t have an OHD account.

How do I change my profile pic/avatar (as in the pic beside your comment name)?
You must have an OHD account (register here). At the top of the website, under the page header (phone users it’s the little lines), click “My Profile”; scroll down and find the avatar section. Click “Browse” or “Choose Image”, when you get a popup go to where you’ve saved the avatar on your computer and upload. The image you upload will automatically be scaled to 96×96. After uploading, don’t forget to click “Update Avatar”.

How do I register on OHD? Does it cost anything?
Click here to register on OHD. No fees to register, emails are kept private. You must login once a year to keep your account active. You do not have to register to leave a comment.

How do I search by state or only show homes for sale?
For computer and most tablet users, look on the right hand side of the home page for the drop downs that allow you to choose status, state, style, etc. If you are on a phone, scroll down toward the bottom until you see the drop downs.

I wish you would only show “For Sale” houses….
You can view only the houses that are for sale by using the drop downs on the side menu (phone users, scroll toward the bottom of the home page), pick “For Sale” from the Status drop down. Note, just because a home is marked “For Sale” doesn’t guarantee that’s a current status, always contact the agent for more details.

Can you find a house for me or only send me houses in X state or for X price?
Sorry, that’s impossible both because of time and the newsletter can not be set up that way.

My comment never appeared!
OHD is rather strict on what is allowed in comments. There is a Comment Policy. No warnings are given when a comment is not allowed, it will not appear if you’ve violated a rule or OHD feels it goes beyond what should be discussed.

What does “National Register” mean?
Most people think having a home on the National Register means you can’t paint your home or make changes without going through the “National Register Board”. There’s more too it than that. Check out what the National Park Service has to say, regarding the National Registry.
