A Parade of Home

Home tours used to be a window into the future. A glimpse into a fascinating world of tomorrow.  Today a home tour brings to mind ginormous houses with a lot of floorspace, but not a lot of design. The checklist usually includes an expanse of granite, a media room, lots of dormer windows (even where there are no rooms) and a touch of wood-grained vinyl. Style is typically looking backwards- like a world of yesteryear, but with big screen TVs. This Saturday you'll have a chance to experience a home tour circa 1955. A glimpse of what the future once looked like to postwar America. Modern Tulsa is hosting an open house and tour of a model home called the Citation.  Tulsa's Atomic Ranch Open House & Tour June 2, 2012 • 10am-3pm  Admission: $5 per person 1717 S.
