We have been through this house a few times. It was recently moved to Metcalf where the bowling alley was at 84th or 85th street on the west side of the road. Hopefully more people will take the time to see the mid-century innovations.

The 50's house has been moved to the backyard of the Jackson County Museum, and you start the tour by watching a quick video on the house. Most of the tour is verbatim what you watch in the video, so I would say that the...More

The 1950's house is well preserved. It's had four previous owners and excellently restored close to the original design. Interesting tour and informative tour guide.
