Every area is different of course but I would recommend contacting your city - or finding the city website and having them refer you to either a historic preservation society or for example, in Los Angeles, we have HPOZ's. These are historical preservation overlay zones. Every zone is different. I recently sold a home in the Gregory Ains Mar Vista tract and found that the neighbors association created their own blog and had things like old architectural plans, etc. Your city will refer you to the right department or organization... and these places often have the inside "track" (if you will) as to new homes that may be coming on the market BECAUSE listing agents have to figure out how to disclose all of that information to buyers.

In addition to the other great suggestions below, you may also want to consider looking at bed and breakfast listings. Many of those homes are historic and have already been fully restored. You will also find instances where historic homes are listed as "potential" bed and breakfasts.

Highly recommend talking with a REALTOR in the area you want to purchase/reside. I use http://www.HistoricProperties.com to advertise any of my historic listings. Leavenworth, KS is the first city in KS (just N of KC) and has many wonderful historic homes. I currently have a home that was built in 1860 on the market. If you don't have a REALTOR yet; feel free to send me a note and I can assist you in finding one in your future location. Wishing you a prosperous 2008!

What part of Missouri? I've got information on properties in the middle of the state, some listed, some not that owners have expressed an interest in selling. Some of those are in small towns fairly distant from amenities (like a grocery store or hospital). Others are in towns in various stages of repair or disrepair. Also, some of them have been converted into bed & breakfasts. if you share your ultimate goal I can send you all kinds of informaiton.

Some communities have a historical society in which you can be pointed in the right direction.

In the Historical Homes part of the town you wish to reside! No, seriously, each town, city has a Historical District where homes are designated for special treatment and preservation. I would google the town of which you have an interest and then search for the City Government, then planning or building department and then CALL that department and speak to a planner. Missouri should have many a Victorian in the major cities and/or small towns.
Some web sites also will allow you to search for housing type: Victorian, Prairie Style, Rancher, Modern, etc.
