This exhibit explores Eichler Homes, and Joseph Eichler’s dream of affordable contemporary homes, which he built from 1949 to 1974. Through photos, mid-century modern furnishings, and memorabilia, the story of an era filled with optimism and prosperity will shine a light on the structural building blocks that make Eichler living so appealing.
Over a 25-year home building career for Joseph Eichler, more than 11,000 Eichler Homes appeared for sale. Enter the world of Eichler Homes through photos, brochures, plans, and stories from current and former homeowners. Featuring furniture from Herman Miller, earthenware from Heath, textiles from Vera, and other iconic items, this exhibit provides a glimpse into Mid-century Modern living, then and now.
Opening Reception, featuring the Kirk Abe Jazz Trio – May 5th, 5-7:30pm.
