    "A Century of Progress: Architecture and Chicago's 1933-34 World's Fair," Five futuristic houses from the fair were moved from their original site in Chicago at the Fair Grounds (just south of the Field Museum of Natural History & Soldiers Field) to the shores of Lake Michigan in Beverly Shores. They were hoped to be a draw to this new community. They include the House of Tomorrow, Cypress Log House, Armco-Ferro House, Wiebolt-Rostone House and the Florida Tropical House.

    For more specifics, see my Century of Progress travelogue.
