Where are the Sears Houses - June 2019 Edition

Sears #229 - 2729 Weaverton St
Rochester Hills, Michigan
It's been a while since the last update to "Where are the Sears Houses?", six months to be exact, but we've finally reached the 11,500 mark for houses on national database of Sears Roebuck homes! After a few slow months, the pace of finding houses has started to pick up and earlier this week, we blew right past 11,500 houses. Many of the recent additions were discoveries from a research trip to Cleveland taken by a group of kit house researchers including myself. Many of the new finds are also authenticated with Sears mortgages. It's always exciting to be able to authenticate finds old and new with mortgages!
