You’ll hear from the National
Trust for Historic Preservation and Indiana Landmarks about a new partnership to restore George Fred Keck’s innovative House of Tomorrow.
More than 1 million people at Chicago’s 1933-34 World’s Fair toured the House of Tomorrow, a groundbreaking design that featured a glass curtain-wall structure and attached garage. When the fair closed, the House of Tomorrow and four other Century of Progress houses traveled to land that became part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The House of Tomorrow has been vacant and deteriorating since 1999.
