Please join APT WGLC and APT EGLC for a special guided tour of the House of Tomorrow.

The House of Tomorrow was designed by George Keck for the 1933 Century of Progress World’s Fair held in Chicago. The House of Tomorrow is one of five exhibited houses that were relocated to Beverly Shores, Indiana in 1934. The house has been vacant since 1999 and will soon undergo a significant rehabilitation.

The tour will be led by Todd Zeiger, Director of the Northern Regional Office of Indiana Landmarks and APT WGLC member, Edward Torrez, Principal at BauerLatoza Studio. Todd and Edward will discuss the ongoing rehabilitation of the House of Tomorrow.  Also, Todd will share the unique relationship between Indiana Landmarks and the National Parks Service regarding the facilitation and leasing of the House of Tomorrow and the other four Century of Progress homes which have already been rehabilitated. 

Details: Saturday, June 22nd, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm, (plan to join the group for lunch after if time allows)

The tour is limited up to 32 participants.

The event is free for members of APT WGLC and EGLC and $10 for non-members.

Please wear project site appropriate footwear (no sandals or flip-flops).

Parking adjacent to the building is limited to eight vehicles.  You may be required to walk from a remote spot to the site.

Please contact aptwglc@gmail.com if you are interested in driving in a carpool or riding in one from the Chicago area.
