The 1950 House




As I read the phenomenal post about 1950s house museums at my one of my new favorite retro blogs, Retro Renovation , I was reminded of the prettiest 50s house museum I ever visited, the 1950 House at the Shelburne Museum in Stowe, Vermont. It is a fun day-trip if you are already there to ski or site-see, and the Shelburne Museum boasts a lighthouse, a riverboat, and many Colonial buildings featuring quilt and folk art exhibits.

Here are links to my own pics of the house when I visited:

Hi RetroModGirl, this is 50s Pam over at RetroRenovation.com. Thank you so much for your mention of my blog and for the link. I love your blog too and have added you to my blogroll. Thanks also for this great post about the Shelburne Farms 50s house. I had heard about it before including that it was great. I will do post on it, too, soon - and will use some of your pics as well, if that's okay. Take care!!!! Pam

I am doing my shop 1950's style. The shop seems fairly easy but I can't really find anything suitable for the living quarters.Phoenix models do a washing machine. As they are a middle aged couple think a lot of my things will be 1940's. If you find a good site please let me know.
