That sounds like a fun project.
For the recent past, perhaps within the past 100 years,
is there a collection of City Directories? Here in
Portland, OR, the Genealogical Forum of Oregon has
city directories that begin in the early 20th century and
continue to about the last 25 years. This source
also has city directories for other (nearby) addresses.
If so, look up that address in as many local volumes
as possible to learn the names of the occupants.
Perhaps some of them owned the property, others
rented. Then check further in the local county or
city property records.
Perhaps you can also use the city/county records to
identify the original builder.
