If This House Could Talk


Every home in Reading has a story. Share yours with your neighbors this spring as part of the Reading 375 celebration. From May 31 – June 15, Reading residents and business owners will post custom signs in front of their homes and businesses sharing just one small interesting fact about what makes their home or business building special. The fact could be historical, architectural, public, or about the people who live or have lived there.

Who lived in your home before you? What year was it built? Has it been renovated? Why? Is there something unique about the architecture? Is there a legend of a ghost? Is there something unique about your yard? The only limit is your imagination.

Pick up your custom “If This House Could Talk” sign THIS SATURDAY, April 13, from 9 – noon at RCTV Studios on Main Street. Signs will be available, as well as the materials to add your own personal story, and also volunteers who can answer any questions you might have. Light refreshments will be served. You do NOT have to register for this event – just stop by any time during the morning to register to participate and pick up your sign.

Every home has a story. Share yours this spring as part of the Reading 375 anniversary celebrations.
