First listed for $1,351 in 1921, the Sears "Crescent" mail-order kit home had two floor plan options, a "neat" front porch, and columns. The owners of this Crescent home in Jacksonville, FL, dressed up the porch with a chandelier and a pair of rocking chairs, yet they retained homey touches like the flower boxes and sidelights.

“It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn't it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human. -Nora Roberts
