Hidden in Plain Sight: Sears Homes of Chicagoland
Join Lara Solonickne and explore the world of “kit homes” – houses sold by mail-order retailers Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, Harris Homes and others. Kit homes were sold out of the pages of catalogs in the early 1900s. Sears alone offered more than 370 designs – everything ranging from Arts and Crafts bungalows to Foursquares to Colonial Revivals. Sears homes came in 30,000-piece kits and were shipped to all 48 states – many in the Midwest.
Day one (Friday) is the classroom presentation. On day two (Saturday), enjoy a two-mile walk through a nearby neighborhood to discover the kit homes hidden in plain sight in Aurora.
