6 comments on “House of Sears (and Roebuck)

  1. I have a friend over in Indiana who used to own one of these Sears homes. Nothing wrong with it at all.

  2. I went through the slideshow and these homes look absolutely beautiful! Maybe Sears shouldn’t have gotten out of doing this.

  3. Hi! Sears stopped issuing catalogs some years back. You’re right… Mr. Roebuck could not handle the pressure when Sears, Roebuck started becoming a monster retailer and he resigned. The story of Sears is actually really interesting, and there are several books about the company’s history.

    Yes, Sears did offer some multi-family buildings as kits, but not “apartment” buildings, per se. There are tons of Sears houses in KY.
