AH Historical Society Presents: Before DIY: Sears Houses Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 PM

November 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Before DIY, there were Sears Houses. You would sit down, open your Sears catalog, pick out your dream home, and order it by mail. Very soon your house would arrive at the nearest rail siding. Then all you had to do was put it together. Everything you needed was included, down to the last nail. Over 70,000 were sold between 1908 and 1940. Atlantic Highlands has an abundance of Sears Houses. Learn more about this unique era of American architecture. A\This talk will make a great companion to our architectural walking tours. Wednesday Nov. 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm. Free.
