'54 BH&G Home for all America

Posted by Robert Searcy at August 05. 2005

In 1954 Better Homes and Gardens did a national promotion with a great MCM style home they built and showed across the country. In Omaha the house was built at 704 Dillon Dirve, in Lincoln at 1600 Sunset Road in Park manor. The entire article is downloaded on www.glenbrookvalley.com.

Anybody know where these houses are and their current state/condition??

Is this it?:

My computer is dialup so I have not gone through all the pages of the BH G article to find the Omaha pictures.
If it is the right house then this is the info from the county assessors web site:

I drove by this house today, it appears to have been remodeled since the 1999 picture above.
There is a 6 Panel front door, and it has vinyl siding I think. I also think they changed the location of the front door. I did not have the above picture with when I drove by, I looked at a bunch of houses (see house photo album).
