Christmas in Carlinville (Illinois)

In an effort to be “anywhere but here,” I traveled to Illinois for the holidays and spent them in Carlinville, Illinois, home of a large collection of Sears Homes, built by Standard Oil.

It was a treat to find the Town Square all lit up for the holidays.

    What a lovely Christmas scene. Only thing missing is the snow. Hope you enjoyed your trip.

    Oh my!! My family all live in Carlinville. I had no idea it was a hot bed for kit homes. I must do more investigating about the houses my Grandparents and Aunt lived in.

    Just found your website – IN LOVE!!!!!
