WHAT: Houses with History 

WHERE/WHEN: Premieres Wednesday, September 29, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV

WHO: HGTV will take a fresh look at the fascinating backstories of America’s oldest homes in its newest renovation series Houses with History. In each episode, history buff Mike Lemieux, carpenter Rich Soares and designer Jen Macdonald will team up to save centuries-old properties in and around Plymouth, Massachusetts. Along the way, they will share the homes’ origins and renovation stories.

The premiere episode will tour two historic properties, a former inn built in the 1830s and a single-family home constructed in 1735. Mike and Rich will explore both properties, discovering what’s hidden behind old closed doors, inside damp basements and under original plank floorboards, before deciding on one to renovate for a modern family. After the selected home is restored and renovated, special guest Jonathan Knight, star of HGTV’s Farmhouse Fixer, will walk through the finished home to see the astounding results.

Houses with History is produced by High Noon Entertainment.
