The Martha Washington: Honor Bilt

October 27th, 2010 Sears Homes No comments

Before I had my own websites, I didn’t realize that you can track the ways that people are led to your website. For instance, today several people came to this site with the search terms “Martha Washington Sears House.”  These things come in waves. Last week, the hot term was “Sears Vallonia.”

I’m hoping those people will come back and read this blog, because before this, I didn’t have much posted on the Sears Honor Bilt home, “The Martha Washington.” This blog is fun follow-up to my eight books, but the fact is, writing and posting pictures is a little time intensive!

Plus, I have more than 30,000 photos. It might take me a little time to get all those photos posted here! And the fact is, I’m adding to those photos all the time!

Let’s talk about the Martha Washington. It’s a beautiful and grand home, a classic Dutch Colonial and is one of my favorite Sears Homes. A little trivia: The Martha Washington has the same floor plan as the Sears Alhamba. The lone difference is the Martha Washington does not have that box window on the front.

Enjoy the photos!
