During my long drive through the Illinois countryside, I found this Sears Hollywood (kit home) sitting just off the main drag in the tiny town of Owaneco, Illinois. The house is a spot-on match to the original catalog image, but this poor Hollywood is in poor shape.
Some of its flesh is missing and the skeletal system is also showing some signs of decay.
Perhaps someone from Owaneco will find this post and let the owner know that his old bungalow is actually a historically significant Sears Home!
