The best thing that happened today was seeing a little Sears House that I’d never seen before. After traveling to about 500 towns and seeing thousands of Sears Homes, this is becoming an increasingly rare event! This afternoon in Crewe, Virginia (off Route 460, about an hour from Lynchburg), I saw this Sears Lucerne.
It’s a real cute house, and a perfect match to the original catalog image.
Crewe, Virginia is a big railroad town, and I found many kit homes within the city limits. (More on that in a subsequent blog.) The town also has a very cool train museum, with many interesting items on display, such as an old coal-fired steam locomotive and a more modern diesel electric locomotive. But my favorite find was this little $867 Sears House!

Just ran across this while surfing Crewe, Va. I purchased this home in 1986 and was the 2nd owner. Always knew it was a Sear House, but never knew the model.
Hi. Just learned that our “coop” is a Lucerne!
So cool. There are two others in are area too.
