A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

A Quick Trip to Greendale, Indiana

This past week, I took myself on a little day trip to Dearborn County, Indiana. It wasn’t all that much fun, actually, since I went by myself, and I hate driving on the Interstate. It was my first trip out to do some mortgage record research since the start of this COVID thing. I called […]

Have I Told You About Winnie?

Have I Told You About Winnie?

OK, I will answer my own question. No, I’m sure I haven’t told you about Winnie. I meant to, last year, but I kept getting side tracked with leads on houses, day trips, meet ups with other researchers, and work……..sigh…….. Then I forgot all about it. Telling you, I mean. I haven’t forgotten about Winnie. […]

You Deserve a Donut

You Deserve a Donut

Hubby and I had a jam packed Summer planned.  Night after night of entertainment at the Springfield Arts Festival, several concerts at the Rose Music Center, Dayton Dragons games, Studebaker Car Club events, Food Truck Rallies, and as always, I was hoping for a few day trips out and about in Ohio hunting down Sears […]

The Sears Houses in Garden Acres (Springfield)

Hey there, my few and faithful followers.  What a year this is turning out to be, huh?  I know you all have a story to tell about how your lives have been affected by the events that have occurred in 2020.  I do, too, but one thing I didn’t expect to happen was that my […]

A Day Trip to Newark

A Day Trip to Newark

As I sit here checking on a couple comments left on this little blog, I realize that I haven’t written a post in almost three months!  You all probably think I haven’t found any new Sears Houses recently. Not so! I did take a little break from research over the Holidays,  but since then I […]

Hello there little blog of mine.  I know.  I’ve missed you, too. Seems like ever since the time changed and darkness has taken over my part of Ohio, I haven’t had the time or energy to go out and about and hunt for Sears Houses.  And now it’s the Holiday Season, which means even less […]

A Sears No. 171 in Sidney

A Sears No. 171 in Sidney

The little Facebook page I started several years ago to promote Sears Modern Homes has grown slowly and steadily over time.  Since my research buddy, Judith, took over the Admin duties a while back, it has grown faster and more steadily than when I was managing it!  Thanks to Judith for keeping it going strong. Thankfully, […]

Happy Fall!

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 […]

I can’t believe it has been over three weeks since my last blog post!  I always intend to do  a post once a week….. then I get busy with real life. Sometimes I forget I even have a blog!  Then I check my backlog of emails and see that people have left comments, which I […]

A few “Sears Houses” in Monroe

A few “Sears Houses” in Monroe

Monroe, Ohio is a small city just off I-75 between Dayton and Cincinnati. Up until this year, I knew pretty much nothing about Monroe.  All I ever saw of it was what was on “The Exit”.  You know the one.  Big Buttery Jesus…….Traders World……Premium Outlet Mall…….. Then, this past Spring, I was asked to give […]
