12. Savage House, 1939

A large white house.
This Colonial Revival home may actually be a Sears mail order home built in 1938. These ready-to-assemble houses were shipped by railroad, which made Aurora (with its accessible rail stop) a convenient community in which to build such homes. The original owner, Russell L. Savage, was a manager at Sears, Roebuck and Co. His wife was Mary. Note the original shutters on the sides and attractive double bay windows that adorn the front.
