The Sears Modern Homes catalogs refer to sales across the United States and the Territory of Alaska. Here's a perfect example of a Sears Belmont in Ketchikan, Alaska. I believe this is the only Sears house ever identified in Alaska!
The Walker-Broderick House, as it is known, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. According to local lore, the house was built between 1916 and 1920 for pharmacist Norman R. "Doc" Walker (which corresponds to the years in which Sears sold the Belmont).
