Happy Fall!

I love the Fall of the year.  It’s without  a doubt my favorite season.  If you know me personally, you might know that orange is my favorite color, so maybe that’s one of the reasons why Fall appeals to me.

Apparently, my love of Fall must prompt me to get out and about hunting up Sears Houses, because as I was going through my photo files (which aren’t very well organized), I discovered I have a lot of pictures of Sears Houses that are decorated for Fall or Halloween, or have lovely Fall colors in the landscaping.

Now that it has finally cooled off here in Ohio and feels more like Fall, I decided this would be a good time to share some of my photos.   I will post the models, the addresses, and when I took the photo in the captions.

How about this house being a perfect match to the catalog?  Just add a skelelton……

This Sears Kilbourne in Cincinnati was built reversed from the catalog offering.  No problem at time of ordering and no extra charge!

OK so the next one isn’t decorated for Fall, but it’s ORANGE!

I got up close to this Sears Attleboro last year when the owners opened their home to the public for a Holiday Craft Sale.   There was a  bit of snow that day, which added a nice touch to the Fall leaves.  Lots of trees on this property, which makes it hard to see from the road.

The Sears Attleboro was featured on the cover of the 1936 and 1938 Modern Homes catalogs.

One of the more unique Sears models, The Carroll.  Also built reversed from the catalog offering.

You always hear that lot of Sears Houses were built close to the railroad tracks.  Well…….if that wasn’t the case, I guess you could try to bring the railroad tracks close to the house!

Just down the street from the Wilmore is this very well kept Sears Rochelle.

I could go on and on…….but it’s a nice Fall day in Ohio.  Maybe I should get out there and take some new photos.

Thanks for following along.
