MyHouseMyStreet is a community-based project to enable today's residents of Brighton & Hove to discover who lived in their homes in the past. It also provides street histories and stories about earlier residents. It was produced by staff and volunteers at The Regency Town House Heritage Centre with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
