Sears, The Magnolia

The other day we showed you an advertising flyer from Sears and one of their homes from 1920, The Magnolia. The "Already Cut and Fitted" lumber including all the materials to build The Magnolia cost a total of $5,140.00 That was a long time ago yet many of these homes are still with us today and represent an historic era. The concept of "Kit Homes" from Sears and Montgomery Ward was common and widely accepted. One could argue that the modern Modular Home has is roots with Sears and Monkey Ward.
