Sears Roebuck and Co. House


category : Historic Homes
Sears Roebuck and Co. House A Sears Roebuck and Co. concrete block house was featured in the 1908 General Catalog for $1,995.00. That amount allowed for paid labor for assembling the house. The concrete blocks were made on site with a Wizard of Buckeye Concrete Block Machine which were sold in the same catalog.

The first floor of this 1912, 2 1/2 story house has a reception hall, living, dining, bedroom, and kitchen with pantry. Four bedrooms and bath are on the second floor. The bedrooms have large closets, an unusual feature for the day.

Sears Roebuck and Co. distributed a catalog with 100 house plans and specifications for which it could supply all materials and instructions for assembly.

The home is now privately owned.


Address: Northwest corner of 4th and Kansas Ave. (Highway 16)
