About this event
The self-guided driving tour, entitled “Indian Hills – Mid Century Modern,” will be held Saturday, Sept. 26, 9:30 a.m. to noon. It features exteriors of commercial and residential properties in the Indian Hills neighborhood (Dodge to Harney and 84th to 90th streets). Drivers may begin the tour at one of three starting points: Swanson Towers, 8405 Indian Hills Drive; Christ the King Catholic Church, 654 S. 86th St.; or the residence of Stan How, 8737 Harney St. Cost is $10 per car. Docents will share information about the architecture at the commercial properties and some homes. Mid-Century Modern, an American design movement in architecture and urban development, became popular after World War II, roughly from 1945 to 1969. The event is part of local architecture and interior design tours held annually in honor of Cathedral architect Thomas Rogers Kimball. It’s sponsored by the Cathedral Arts Project and Mod Lines, a vintage Mid-Century furniture store. Social distancing is recommended and tour participants are asked to wear a mask.
