The Florence - Long time ago

Years ago Montgomery Ward (remember them) along with Sears sold "Kit Houses." The attached advertising flyer is from Montgomery Ward, they were advertising a "....perfect small family home." When purchased The Florence would be delivered as a large pile of pre-cut lumber that the homeowner would then put together and build their home. Many of these homes are all over the place and typically the current owners seldom realize they live in such an historic home. We just thought you might enjoy seeing some history. Oh, the total cost of The Florence home was $1,440 with the staggering monthly payment of $27.50. Isn't this amazing! Want something newer, call us we can help.
