Ervine House
67 Elm Street 1936
This is a classic Sears, Roebuck, and Co. catalog house, which was popular between 1908 and 1940. During those years, Sears & Roebuck sold about 70,000 homes through their mail order Modern Homes program. This is the Chatham model and considered Colonial Dutch in style. The kit, costing $1,667, was ordered in 1935 and delivered by train to Tunkhannock in early 1936. William and Mildred Ervine moved into the home in late 1936, and Mildred lived here until 1986.
