Sears Catalog Homes
Clip: Season 5 | 5m 9s | Video has closed captioning.
To commemorate Mail Order Catalog Day on August 18, we’ll check in on an Iowa home or two ordered from a Sears Catalog in the 1920s, and still standing today. Between 1908-1940, Sears sold 75,000 houses via catalog. There are hundreds in Iowa, but they are difficult to identify. One of the Sears catalog kit houses is located in Bussey, Iowa.
