1933 Chicago World’s Fair “Century of Progress” homes

While visiting Indiana Dunes National Park this week, we saw the five homes that had been included in the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair “Century of Progress” exhibit. Following the conclusion of the fair, they were moved by barge or truck to Beverly Shores, Indiana. Today, these five (5) impressive homes form the “Century of Progress Historic District.”

Due to the elevation change, I could not get a quality photograph of the Cypress Log Cabin and the House of Tomorrow is in need of renovation. As a result, online photos are provided of these two. Regardless, I believe you will find these stunning homes and their history to be fascinating. Enjoy!
