from this nostalgic era, The 1950s All-Electric House at
the Johnson County Museum of History offers an eye-opening
look at the technology of the times. Futuristic features

trendy appliances and "moon glow" lighting. Step
inside this "house of the future" and it's suddenly
1954 all over again!

House is once again a model house. The house was relocated

of History in 1994. Guided tours of the All-Electric
House help visitors learn why a home in the suburbs was
part of the American dream after World War II.
