Sears Lexington
Massapequa Park, New York
When I started writing about the Sears houses in Massapequa Park, New York back in 2015, I didn't know how many Sears houses were built there or the history behind them. Since then, with a lot of research and some luck, I think we've been able to document all of the Sears houses. I've also been able to put some stories behind how those houses came to be built there. But the research is always ongoing and there may be more to learn and share in the future. This page serves as a starting point for those looking to learn more about the Sears houses located in Massapequa Park. 


Much of the information available on this page can also be found in this blog post which I've updated over the years to reflect new information. If you've been through that page, much of what you'll find here will be familiar. If you haven't, it provides a good overview about the Sears houses of Massapequa Park.
