If you look in the attic or the basement you may find a board, once part of a crate containing hardware, with shipping information that identities your residence as a Wardway Home. This shipping label from a 1916 Wardway Home identifies the original owner, order #, owner's home town, and the train depot to which the house was to be shipped ..
Our Wardway Homes history includes numerous Catalog illustrations that help home owners and researchers understand how Montgomery Ward assured customers that ordering a pre-cut home through the mail would provide extensive saving in time and money.
Thanks to fellow historians and researchers our book includes illustrations of rare blueprints and photographs.
The Field Guide features original illustrations from Wardway Home catalogs, many accompanied by photographs of actual Wardway Homes we identified.
Our book features many unique photographs, including exterior and interior, acquired over ten years researching Wardway Homes
