      Sears Homes of Chicagoland

      Highland Park ---- Highland Park Historical Society presents ‘Sears Homes of Chicagoland’ with Lara Solonickne. The program will be held in the Highland Park Public Library auditorium, 494 Laurel Avenue, at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 15th, 2019.

      Do you love old homes? On October 14, come explore the Sears Homes of Chicagoland.

      From 1908 to 1942, Sears Roebuck and Company sold ready-to-build kit homes through catalogs. Despite the rash of teardowns in the Chicago area, some of these houses have managed to survive. Learn about the Sears homes still standing in Highland Park and neighboring communities, and how to identify them.

      Lara Solonickne is the creator of the Sears Homes of Chicagoland website (sears-homes.com). She is an architecture enthusiast who enjoys uncovering the hidden stories behind old houses. She holds a degree from Northwestern University. Her research and blog have been featured by FOX 32 News, Curbed, McMansion Hell, the Chicago Tribune, Yale University Press, The Birmingham News, and more.
