Kit Houses

ID Block 7

Local Lore: When it comes to kit houses, local lore is powerful. Sometimes neighbors recall delivery and construction of the house, or they remember a friend’s family buying one. There may be areas in the town or city developed by one builder who purchased plans for a group of house lots. This oral tradition often is not based on direct recollection but rather popular lore that spreads easily due to the allure of kit houses.
