You may not be able to travel in time, but you can wake up to your own piece of history every morning.

From homes that sheltered the movers and shakers of the day, to houses that offer structural details and features you just don't find in your average suburban dwelling, historic houses are more than just a place to hang your hat.

If you like the idea of a home with a past, here are five houses for sale -- from Vermont to Hawaii, and in a variety of price ranges -- that are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
