House History Request Form

Do you need assistance researching your home in Ridgewood?  Use the form below to send us your street address and any details you have on your house already. We will research the history of your home using the resources at the Ridgewood Public Library.

Fees are included for in-depth house histories which include:

  • $100 deposit guaranteeing at least 4 hours of research

  • A write-up of the history of your home (click here for examples)

  • Images from our archives and/or from the RPL databases

  • $25 fee per additional hour of research past the 4 hour deposit


In-depth house histories are a project that will take over 4 hours of research to complete.  Turn around time can be within 6-8 weeks.  There is no fee if you are requesting a time to meet with the Local History Librarian to get started on your research, or if you are requesting assistance with a simple look-up.

We accept cash, credit card or check. Checks should be made out to "Ridgewood Public Library". The deposit needs to be received prior to any research being conducted, and can be dropped off at the Reference Desk or mailed to:
