Historic Tyler’s “Mod Squad” Modern Committee plans to host its second open house Thursday, featuring a 1957 home built by Bruce-Russell Associates.
The event is free and available to Historic Tyler Inc. members only, but new memberships to the organization may be purchased at the door starting at $40 for individuals.
The featured mid-century home has the characteristic low pitch roof, deep roof overhangs and outdoor courtyards.
The Stewarts have modernized the home, opening the kitchen up to the living room yet still maintaining the original floor plan of the home.
Committee members said this home is a great example of melding the old and new, still upholding the design of the mid-century era.
Members of the Mod Squad committee will be docents, for the evening, to educate and inform visitors about the architecture and history of the home.
In August, the organization hosted a tour of a home at 526 E. Lake St., the former residence of late architect E. Davis Wilcox, owned today by Ray and Wendy Gallagher.
“We’re hoping for a good turnout,” Ms. Edmonds said.
