This year has been a “bumper” year for finding examples of the Sears Sherwood kit home, as we have gone from knowing that two examples existed (according to information from the Sears Archives list), to knowing of the address of an authenticated example in North Chicago, IL (read *HERE*), to having the address of a second (probable) example; likely the same example as one of the examples on the Sears Archives list (EDIT: I have been able to confirm that it is the same home as one of the two on the Sears Archives list). This is that second (probable) example. EDIT (12/10/2016): We have example number three, and it’s authenticated! (Click *HERE* to view)
Sewickley is located about 20 miles away from Pittsburgh, PA, which had an active sales office at that time. Hopefully one of the Pittsburgh-area researchers in our group will be able to authenticate this home
There are more images of the home on Zillow, if you want to look at them, click *HERE* for the link. If you live in Greater Pittsburgh and want to live in a rare kit home model, you can choose between this, and a slightly less rare Sears Elmhurst in nearby Aliquippa. Coincidentally, as with the Elmhurst in Aliquippa, there appears to be a Sears Barrington a few doors down from this home as well 🙂 Also, there appears to be a Wardway Maywood a few more doors down. Quite a nice little collection of homes there, if I must say so myself.
If you of another Sherwood, or any other kit home for that matter, let me know in the comments, section, or through the “Contact Me” form.
