“The 1950s Housing Boom in Montgomery County”
In the 1950s the population of Montgomery County more than doubled to 340,928, igniting a housing construction boom that saw the construction of more than 40,000 single-family homes. Join Bob Bachman, Chairman of the Center for Suburban Studies, for a History Conversation in concert with the release of Montgomery History’s newest online exhibit. Bob’s talk examines national and local factors that fueled the boom, distinctive 1950s housing styles, where these new houses were built, who built them, what they cost, and what the houses looked like.
This presentation will be conducted via Zoom. More information about how to attend this virtual presentation is available at MontgomeryHistory.org.
