1920s Portland and the Better Homes in America Campaign: A Look at Eastmoreland’s Better (Small) Homes


10:00 am - 11:30 am

Architectural Heritage Center

The 1920s national  “Better Homes in America Campaign,” focused on creating healthy homes while making home ownership available to a larger part of the population. Judith Kenny will review that national campaign and discuss leading Portland architects that took up that challenge and gave their attention to designing the “home for people of normal means.”  Highlighted will be demonstration houses built in the Eastmoreland neighborhood during the 1920s.
