Register

The glass and steel House of Tomorrow was displayed as a predictor of future home styles at the 1933-34 Century of Progress Exposition. When the fair ended, the House of Tomorrow and four other model homes from the fair were brought to Beverly Shores, most at the request of real estate developer Robert Bartlett. The House of Tomorrow has since gone into disrepair, but restoration work is now underway. Todd Zeiger of Indiana Landmarks will lead us on this tour, which includes the House of Tomorrow and one other model home. Afterward, we’ll grab lunch at Bartlett’s Gourmet Grill & Tavern, a local favorite.
