Salt Lake Modern Tour: Cottonwood Modern

Image details

Most of the homes in the Cottonwood Club neighborhood were built for the 1955 Parade of Homes. The neighborhood features a wide variety of progressive architectural styles for 1955, including mid-century modern, chalet-modern, and ranch. 

On the day of the tour 5-6 private residences, featuring the designs of architect Stephen MacDonald through the Salt Lake Home Builders Association, will be open to tour, most within the same neighborhood block.

This tour is hosted by and is a fundraiser for Preservation Utah, a local non-profit dedicated to historic preservation.
