Prospect Hill Modern Houses (Walking Tour)

Image details

New Haven’s most affluent neighborhood, Prospect Hill is not only a treasure trove of grand early twentieth-century homes, but also a range of important mid-century modern residences. Focusing on these domestic structures, this walking tour will include the house of Ed Logue (1955), the visionary development administrator of the New Haven Redevelopment Agency, the work of husband-wife duo Carlton and Diana Granbery, and a range of experimental buildings designed by local architects for their own families, including those of Frank Winder (1962), William deCossy (1972), Howard Lathrop (1973), Gene Festa (1974), King-lui Wu (1978), Peter Tagiuri (1986), and Turner Brooks (2000).


Guide: Architectural historian Michael Waters, a board member of the New Haven Preservation Trust and an assistant professor at Columbia University, will lead this tour.
