If you were looking for a Sears Roebuck Argyle model and found Cincinnati, you’d be doing okay. We have 16 of them here, or at least that’s how many Beatrice Lask found when she did her Sears House Survey back in the early 90′s. I’m guessing there are more that haven’t been unearthed yet.

Notes about this post

Apparently Laraine was so enthusiastic about all these Argyle models that she lost count, as actually there are 17 houses pictured above.

Laraine got quite a few interior photos of the first one shown, but I am electing to put them in a separate post.

Since Laraine published this, several more Argyles in the Cincinnati area have been located.  Here they are.
