About this event

Brunswick’s Sears Kit Houses led by Aimée Keithan

Pejepscot History Center’s Museum Services Manager, a trained architectural designer with a doctorate in historic house conservation, takes participants on a walk along Longfellow Avenue, a hub of mid-20th-century Sears Kit homes. Yes, you could buy a whole house from the Sears catalogue! Learn about the Brunswick builder who put them up, the neighborhood, and the characteristics that will help you spot the architecture in the future.

Starting point is the former Longfellow School, 21 Longfellow Avenue.

Participants meet at starting point; driving directions and parking information provided upon registration. Please check-in with tour leader at least 10 minutes prior to tour time.

Tours are limited to 20 unless otherwise noted. PHC maintains a waiting list for each tour in case of cancellations. Most tours are 75-90 minutes, though tours outside of downtown may go slightly longer. Please dress accordingly for the weather and wear sturdy shoes, sunblock, and/or bug spray as needed.
