Ohio Historical Society – Lustron Home

| October 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Travel back to the 1950’s and step into a Lustron Home – a fully metal home manufactured here in Columbus, Ohio. On display inside the Ohio Historical Society, the prefabricated single-family residence was the height of modern life – compact and easy-care. The exhibit offers a hands-on opportunity to understand and reflect on some of the prevailing issues of the decade – from McCarthyism to rock and roll.
