With the theme of a "Century of Progress," these houses were built for the 1933 Chicago World's Fair to demonstrate modern architectural design and new technologies such as central air conditioning and dishwashers. Real estate developer Robert Bartlett brought the houses to the dunes by barge in 1935. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the homes are now property of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and are leased to private individuals.
