An exhibit set to open in late 2012 at the Ohio Historical Center features a reconstructed Lustron home. The homes were billed as “the House America Has Been Waiting For,” and consisted of porcelain-enameled, steel-walled modular residences. They were built in Columbus from 1948 to 1950. The exhibit has been on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The Lustron was intended to do for the housing industry what Henry Ford did for the auto industry. About 2,500 homes were made. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1951. The photo shows a Lustron home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
