My Grandfather Bought A House From A Sears Catalog 100 Years Ago. See What It Looks Like Now

Sears, once a retail giant, faces more store closures amid declining sales, emblematic of the struggles of iconic American companies like General Electric and Ford against tech behemoths like Amazon and Google. Yet, Sears leaves behind a rich legacy, from pioneering mail-order business to offering houses through catalogs.

One Reddit user shared renovating his grandfather’s Sears catalog-purchased home from 1916, a testament to Sears’ innovative model of shipping homes in pieces with blueprints. Despite its age, the house remains remarkably intact, undergoing renovations to preserve its historical charm.

Looking forward, one wonders what aspects of our era will amaze future generations. Will it be our advanced technology or something more fundamental to daily life?
