Sears Robuck Kit House - The model named the Magnolia, sold between 1918 and 1922, needed two railroad boxcars and was delivered to you. The 10-room Magnolia was “the creme de la creme of the Sears kit homes,” said Rosemary Thornton, an expert on Sears kit homes and author of “The Houses That Sears Built.” “It was bigger and grander and fancier than any of the other 370 models that Sears offered.”
