A Sampling of Kit Houses of Lombard

A few weeks ago, I featured a Sears house in Lombard that I found, but that is not the only one! Lombard has dozens of Sears houses and even more from Harris Brothers and the other kit home manufacturers.

Jean Cooper of the Lombard Historical Society was kind enough to send me some photos which are just a small sampling of the kit houses in town.
