The Main Street Sears Houses
Let's see the two Sears houses on Main Street first.
|138 E. Main St., Cary.|
First up is a Sears Concord. I realize the house doesn't precisely match the catalog illustration, but Sears often customized the split level homes of the early 1930's--adding and removing dormers, making the houses extra wide, adding bay windows, moving the fireplaces.
Mayme and Leonard Parker received the mortgage from Sears Roebuck in December 1932. They paid $10,000 for the house. Leonard was a factory manager. They moved out around 1942.
