Finding the history on a home?

Anyone know how to find out the history of a home you may be interested in buying?

Run the house's serial number. It can be found inside the door jamb.

Look up the county records for info and status of ownership and if any major projects were perfomed on it.

We had our front door jam replaced a while back!

Is there another place in the house that the serial number might be found?
