Though I know that not everyone sees our posts the moment they are published, you can be assured that this one is hitting the blogosphere at the tail end of the work week here at the PreservationNation HQ in Washington, DC. This is not (entirely) because I've been delayed in writing this, but because this blog series, featuring listings from our Historic Properties for Sale website (originally announced as being a Wednesday feature) is moving to a new spot on the schedule - and this is it.

"Why?" I hear you asking.

Well, with the time change back to Daylight Savings Time this weekend - and with my allergies flaring up - it occurred to me that spring is right around the corner, and with it, prime home buying season. (I don't know if this is an official thing, but I know all the "For Sale" signs pop up in my neighborhood as soon as the weather warms up a bit.) More homes for sale, means more opportunities for poking around open houses on the weekend... and we here at the National Trust want you looking at historic homes. (Preservationists, after all, make the best historic homeowners, right?) Thus, consider this first of your weekly reminders to take a peek at our Historic Properties for Sale site when you're planning your open house visits to see what's available in your area!

In the comments, take a moment to tell us if there's a listing you'll be taking a look at this weekend.
