Thematic Nomination: Lustron Houses of Kansas

The Patterson House (1949) is a one-story, three-bedroom Lustron with a modified Westchester Deluxe plan. The property also features a matching Lustron garage. It was built for Harold and Alice Patterson who raised five children in the house. Founded by Carl Strandlund, the Lustron Corporation applied porcelain-enameled steel panel technology to residential designs to address the post-WWII housing shortage. But the company was short-lived (1949-1950) and only 2500 houses were constructed. The Patterson House was nominated for its architectural significance.
