One Lonely Sears Crescent in Galax, Virginia

September 18th, 2010 Sears Homes No comments

Recently, I visited Galax, Virginia and drove around the town for a bit looking for Sears Homes.

Unfortunately, during my time in Galax, I found only one Sears Home, this little Crescent in a not-so-happy part of town, within a stone’s throw of a massive electrical substation, and very near a large industrial area. It’d be very interesting to know if the owners of this Crescent realize that their little house is a Sears House. Pictured below is the Crescent in Galax, and further below is a happy Crescent in Northern Illinois.
