Ornamental Concrete Block Architecture
Ornamental concrete blocks became a popular building material in residential and commercial use in the post-Victorian era. Offered as an option for Sears Mail Order Homes, the mail order catalog eventually sold concrete block machinery through their catalog.

Information about the history and use of ornamental concrete blocks can be found in articles from The Old-House Journal and in selected pages from the Sears Roebuck and Co Catalog.
