    History of Hogarth's House Museum:

    Hogarth's House was constructed somewhere between 1713 and 1717 by Downes Family who were original owners of this site. However, several years after the death of the owner, Hogarths bought this house in 1749. One year later in 1950, Hogarths extended this house and after that Mrs Hogarth also added a single storey to it in 1769. Then, in recent past during August 2009, Hogarth's House caught fire and it caused a lot of damage to the premises after which the building was closed for restructuring and renovation. This house remained closed until November 8, 2011 and then two of its floors were opened for visitors.
