When researching the history of a house or property, historic newspapers are sometimes overlooked as a resource. Not only can the papers provide some historical context for what was going on in the community when the house was built, they also are a great place to look for your property owners. It was through newspaper ads that I was able to ascertain that the farm I have been researching was put up for public auction.
Google has an archive of the newspapers that it has digitized, and you can find the link here. Look for newspapers from your town or community, and you will see the issues that are offered on the site. Once you have clicked on the link for your local paper, simply enter the address or even just the street name you are researching and see what pops up. Also search for the names of your property owners to see if they are mentioned in the papers. You just might be surprised!
