As my dear husband says, “different people like different things,” but this house has a facade that only a mother could love.
House Design #5010 was offered in 1915 and gone by 1916, so it didn’t last long. I’ve only seen one other #5010 and it was in Louisville, Illinois. There’s a photograph of #5010 (the one in Louisville) in our book, The Mail-order Homes of Montgomery Ward.
Do you have a Harris Brother’s #5010 in your neighborhood? If so, please take a photo and send it to us. It’s a pretty unique house and not one you’re likely to miss!
