A pictorial story about saving the National Historic Sears Magnolia Mail Order Home in Canton, Ohio. The house was built in 1923. The restoration took place between 1991 and 2001.
This is a video I put together of an old 1933 Sears Catalog Kit House. This model is called “The Brentwood” These houses could be bought out of a Sears catalog as a kit house with some assembly required. This little historic home was well preserved in time, neat to see, and housed appliances from back in the day too. The house is located in Historic Centreville Park in Centreville, Virginia. I took this video on 8/13/2017.
