I’m longing for Summer. I’ll even take Spring right now. After Mother Nature teased us with temperatures in the 60’s earlier this week, Winter has blown back in with lows tonight expected in the teens.
What to do to get through these last days of Winter? Look through pictures of Sears Houses I took when the grass was green and the flowers were starting their Summer show.
And I came across this beauty.
It was a beautiful day in Ohio when I took these photos. Here’s a few more showing the house from other angles.
The Sears Lewiston was offered in the Modern Homes catalogs from 1929 until the last catalog was published in 1940.
The original owner of the Lewiston in Delaware was Claude O’Neal, who obtained the financing for his home through Sears, Roebuck (Walker O Lewis, Trustee), making this a documented Sears kit house.
Claude, his wife Mabel, and their two children were listed as living in the home in the 1930 Census.
Claude was a Professor of Botany at Ohio Wesleyan University.
