Sears Homes: House in a Kit--Some Assembly Required (Area Event)
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
West Side Brewing (Private Room), 3044 Harrison Avenue
In the early 1900’s, many people bought houses the same way they often bought household goods – from a Sears catalog. Jim Bodle will discuss kit homes from Sears and other companies along with pointers on how to tell the difference. You will learn about the types of houses Sears offered and some Westwood examples, as well as the Cincinnati connection to the manufacture of these kits.
Saturday, March 9 through Sunday, March 10
