1920s Portland and the Better Homes in America Campaign: A Look at Eastmoreland’s Better (Small) Homes

During the 1920s the national Better Homes in America Campaign talked of innovations in domestic architectural, much as the annual “Street of Dreams” today addresses domestic architectural design. The campaign’s focus was healthy homes and making home ownership available to a larger part of the population. Leading Portland architects took up this challenge and this talk will highlight designed demonstration houses built in the Eastmoreland neighborhood during the 1920s.
