I'm giving a two-day class on the Sears Homes of Chicagoland. 

The first day is a fun two-hour classroom session where you will learn how to identify and authenticate a Sears home, and what makes them historically important. The second day features a two-mile walk through the neighborhoods of Glen Ellyn to see Sears houses in the wild! (Rain date for the walk is May 18.)
