When the House of Tomorrow was completed in 1933 it gave visitors a sneak peek at the shiny, optimistic future that was to come—all twelve sides of it.
Today, this relic of the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair sits in disrepair. But preservationists are hoping to change that with the announcement of a new campaign to restore the house to its former glory.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has declared the House of Tomorrow a “National Treasure,” and the Indiana Landmarks organization plans to raise $2 million to preserve the house.
