New England Ranch House

The New England Ranch House was first available in 1954 under the designation MH-2. In 1956, the number was changed to 1701 and it sported a new one-piece box. Ten years later the number was changed again to 1808 and this is the most difficult box to obtain because it was only available for five years. When the 1912 two-piece box came out in 1971, it showed a photograph of the house on the top.

There is a wide variety of colors that this house was issued in. We’ve listed these below in order of rarity, with the most difficult to obtain listed first, along with the parts that are most often broken or missing from this dwelling.

New England Ranch House Porch

Porch
The New England Ranch House Porch was colored TAN or WHITE and is almost always found with the pins broken. Note the lack of these pins in the locations that are indicated by the black circles in the picture to the left. The house will go together fine without these pins. This part is not available as a reproduction.
