October 1954_Home Advertisement


Architect: Lewis A. Dix

Similar to the modern Ranch style houses of the 1940's, the notable side gable roof and asymmetrical design of this house characterizes it as an early mid-century modern home. The Ranch style home is an excellent example of early mid-century architecture and the suburban home as it begins to incorporate one very new feature to the private home, the garage. With the ever-growing population of automobiles homeowners no longer sought out the previously compact, closely situated homes. Instead sprawling designs on much larger lots began to emerge as the new dominate style.
