    The house looks so well loved and cared for. It looks like you could just move in. Love the story that goes with it. Brought tears just reading it. It is a beautiful lady.

    This is the sweetest note I’ve ever seen! When I get an old house when I grow old, It’s a must-do to write one of these little treasures for the next family! Wonderful house, too! I can tell the house has been dearly loved, and not only by the letter!

    Something in my eye, sniff. It’s a lovely house, though I can do without the wallpaper. The story makes me want to go to South Dakota and give the house a big hug.

    Nice house and nice story. I’m no expert on Sears homes, but do those porch columns look original? They’re very nice, but it seems like something more craftsmany would have been there originally.

      Hmm… good point the great house would look even better with Craftsman style columns in front. I must say that I love the kitchen, soft blue green tiles and all and the built ins and the tan tiled bathroom are treasures.

    I feel very weepy reading the note. Yes it’s a loved home for sure. How I wish I could stand at the door and say well hello there come in for tea. So I shall make a cup of tea down here in steamy coral gables and think nothing is forever and one day I will have a house like this. I would not change anything. Love it.

  6. I love everything about this house! What a treasure!

    I am in tears. I never read a house note before. I would love to think my old Florida cracker house thinks of herself as “Holly’s house.” I love this house too and would just tweak a few things. Even empty, it looks spotless.

    I love the wallpaper in the 9th photo of the entry. We have it in one room of our home built about the same time. I’d love to know the pattern and if there is anyplace where it could be purchased. Ours is looking pretty shabby and I’d like to replace it with new.

    The story had me sold, the one thing missing for me is a clawfoot … great house!

    I grew up in Aberdeen, about a dozen blocks from this house. It’s in a neighborhood of beautiful old houses where my best friend and I used to ride our bikes to look at them and dream. I believe there are two historical districts, this one on the north side of town and another on the south (my mom would have said the richer) side. Aberdeen’s nickname is the Hub City due to the numerous railroad lines that crossed there. I understand lots of the larger old homes were built with railroad money.

    Every old house has a story to tell! It’s nice to read this one filled with emotions of the people who loved her!

    Anyone know what model this is? Doesn’t particularly strike me as a Sears.

    This home’s materials wouldn’t have even been pre-cut by Sears (like later ones), let alone built in sections like the term “prefab” suggests; if I were the owner I’d be very leery of calling this wonderful home “prefab”. This home was totally built on-site, 100%.

    Awesome Home! I love the letter too!

    Oh, if I only could…I love this house, love the person that did the letter. Oh my. Sigh.

    I knew I loved the house…then I read the note, took a second look…and fell in love again. What a beautiful treasure.

    I have never seen a Sears home as big as this. The rooms are quite large and comfortable…I dig it!

    I log on here and I always feel a little happier about “this American life” after reading the comments of the the Old House Dreamers.
