Wheat Ridge 2020, modmood and Retro Consignment present the 2013 Mid Century and Modern in Wheat Ridge Home Tour on Saturday, September 7, 2013.  The 2011 event was a huge success with over 300 participants enjoying the tour.   Visit our 2011 Home Tour Facebook page to view pictures of the event.

Wheat Ridge is rich with some of the most remarkable examples of mid-century modern residential architecture in the entire Front Range region. Mid-Century Modern (MCM) design emphasizes structures with ample windows, open floor-plans and a strong connection to the indoor/outdoor experience. Many mid-century houses utilized groundbreaking post and beam design that eliminated bulky support walls in favor of walls made of glass. Function was as important as form in MCM design, with an emphasis placed specifically on targeting the needs of the average American family.

Volunteers are needed for this special event.  Volunteers are asked to work a 2 1/2 hour shift and will receive one complimentary tour ticket.   Volunteers will be in the homes helping the visitors through the homes and assisting the home owners. If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please contact Wheat Ridge 2020 at 720-259-1030 or via email  (Kimatwheatridge2020dotorg?subject=Modern%20Home%20Tour%20Volunteer)  .
