In 2008, I visited Colonial Heights (just outside of Richmond) and did a survey of their kit homes. A short time later, I did a talk and booksigning. I was quite surprised to find so many kit homes in Colonial Heights. In nearby Petersburg, I found only three kit homes in the whole city! In Colonial Heights, I found more than three dozen.
During my 2008 visit, there was one house in particular that I studied and stared at, but could not identify it. When I returned to Colonial Heights on March 2011, I was able to identify it almost immediately.
This sweet little yellow house was an Aladdin Willard.
