Modernism in Your Backyard
Saturday, October 8
Period Modern, 4347 McCullough, San Antonio, 78212
In October, Mid Tex Mod partnered with Central San Antonio’s Shearer Hills/Ridgeview Neighborhood Association for a hugely successful 10th Annual Docomomo US Tour Day! Over 200 people joined us for the tour of five outstanding mid-century-modern homes.
Located between San Pedro and Hwy 281 just south of North Star Mall, the Shearer Hills and Ridgeview neighborhoods developed between the 1950s and the 1960s and boast a fantastic collection of traditional and contemporary ranch houses and modern split-levels.
The tour day kicked off at Period Modern with a talk by Rick Lewis, Senior Lecturer at UTSA College of Architecture, Construction, and Planning, and the day wrapped up with food from Mi Taquito Arandas Jalisco.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, homeowners, and participants for making this such a successful and fun-filled event!
Cities across the country participate in this national event to raise awareness of and appreciation for buildings, interiors and landscapes designed in the United States during the mid-20th century. Mid Tex Mod has participated in Tour Day for the past five years, including tours of HemisFair '68 in San Antonio and the works of John S. Chase, FAIA in Austin.
