News from the region

October tours offer c.1933 view of the future

9/16/2014


Nestled in the dunes overlooking Indiana’s crescent of Lake Michigan shoreline, you might be surprised to find five historic buildings that prefigured the future of the American home. The five didn’t start out in the Dunes. They came over on barges after the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago, titled “A Century of Progress.” The houses starred in the Homes of Tomorrow exhibit, where nearly 50 million people gazed upon the future of residential architecture and the stunning home conveniences on the horizon. On October 17 and 19, join Indiana Landmarks for tours and activities celebrating the history and rescue of Beverly Shores’ remarkable Century of Progress homes.

 

On October 17, a festive beachside party and look inside the Century of Progress Houses benefits Indiana Landmarks’ rescue of the House of Tomorrow, the lone unrestored house of the five. The event features hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and entertainment in the historic Lake Michigan houses. Registrants will also receive a copy of the new booklet about the project, Saving a Century of Progress.  $125/person. Ticket required: https://fairaffair.eventbrite.com

 

On October 19, our Landmarks Experience offers a morning of talks by experts on the Century of Progress World’s Fair and its impact on American design and housing, with lunch and top-to-bottom tours of the Century of Progress houses, including remarks by leaseholders who have restored the private homes. $50/member; $70/nonmember. Ticket required: https://centuryofprogress.eventbrite.com

Indiana County Homes

Before federal welfare created a safety net for the poor and disabled, Indiana operated county homes. Today, many of those historic sites are vacant and neglected.
