  • eastof72ndThere is a story behind this house that I can't recall right now. It was a showcase house called the House of the Future or the House of Tomorrow. It was to showcase modern architecture and modern amenities. I can't remember exactly. If I find my info I'll pass it along. Nice pic! @birdhouseid
  • eastof72ndIt was known as the House of To-Morrow. It was a project constructed for the Omaha Junior Chamber of Commerce. It was constructed in 1936 from the design of local architect Reinholdt Hennig. According to the newspaper at the time of construction it was purchased by Una Gross who was referenced as being a local girl who moved to Hollywood to be an actress. Sorry to totally nerd out. @birdhouseid
