5 Hegarty Street Glebe

House history

Question: I live in a quiet street in an old terrace house which is probably the only one ever built on the site. There is nothing famous or special about it. Am I right to think that all I will find are dates and names of occupiers?  

Answer: If that’s all you want, this should be straightforward. But scratch around and you might find out a whole lot more.
