Midwest Mid-Century Modernism

New York, California, and even Illinois aren’t the only places where you can find stunning examples of Mid-Century Modernism. Try the Hoosier state, Indiana, for example. Since it is Historic Preservation Month, the National Bank of Indianapolis and Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana are sponsoring a tour of five Modernist homes by the state’s progressive, 20th-Century architects. These private residences date from the late 1950s to the early 1960s, featuring period furnishings and retro home decor. The cost is $12 in advance and $15 day-of-tour. Historic Landmarks Foundation members pay $10 in advance and on the tour day. Contact Mark Dollase of the Historic Landmarks Foundation (mdollase@historiclandmarks.org) for more information. (The home pictured above was designed by Evans Woollen in 1958; it is part of the tour.)
