Site Discovers A Throw Back

Way back in the day, Sears used to sell pre-manufactured homes from their catalog. Apparently, Annapolis has quite a few of them as was discovered by the blog The Ugly Woman’s Guide To Internet Dating (yeah, go figure). Check it out and see the 7 homes like the Newcastle (shown above) which was originally purchased for $1631.00. The blog has the original catalog pages as well as current photos of the homes.

Do local Realtors keep track of such things?  What a great little piece of history! What a great find!
