Historic buildings have a lot of contributions to the development and prosperity of a city. The primary contribution of these historic buildings is to provide the city’s historical information such as past events, continuity of change through time, periods of ascendancy of remarkable events, or ruptures in the urban fabric as a result of conflict or transformation. In this thesis, the writer attempts to carry out an investigation on Harar Jugol aged traditional houses by studying the characteristics of the original materials used to construct the houses and by examining the maintenance work being carried out at present. These two major objectives show the importance of these historical buildings in its historical and current contributions.
