These homes, built from the early 1900s to this year, are all seeking new owners.

Take a field trip to your hometown’s historic district and stroll the sidewalk. Blur the cars out of focus, and it’s not hard to imagine what life looked like in decades and centuries past. It’s proof you don’t have to travel to a museum to get a glimpse of history — instead, you can live it every day when you own a home from your favorite decade. To prove just how diverse American homes are, here’s a sampling of homes for sale on Trulia that showcases period home design and architecture styles from each decade, from 1900 through today.

From the gorgeous wraparound porch to the “gingerbread” trim, historical details are what make this 1903 home a standout.

The 1910s: $439,900, 15 Geneva St., Medford, OR 97504

Tucked behind lush landscaping on a cobblestone street, this 1914 craftsman bungalow in Medford, OR, is a well-cared-for charmer. With original mahogany stain woodwork, box beam ceilings, and bird’s-eye maple and red fir floors, this home is a magnificent example of built-to-last elegance. Add in modern details like heated Carrara marble floors and a newly remodeled kitchen, and you’ll want to move right in!
