About the Event


This exhilarating class examines the social and historical influences that defined the unique residential styles and trends most associated with the mid-mod era. We'll look not only at common forms like the Cape Cod and the ranch house, but also some  high-style examples designed by prominent architects. The fascinating  story behind 1950s and 60s homes, neighborhoods, and suburbs will be  explored in this three-hour CE class, which will leave you with a new appreciation for Minnesota's mid-century properties.           

Taught by architectural historian and Augsburg University professor Kristin Anderson, this rich overview is three hours long and has been approved by the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce for 3 hours of continuing real estate education. It is open to all.

This class is part of the education program of  Rethos: Places Reimagined. We are proud to offer a variety of classes for homeowners, students, Realtors, and others who love old buildings. The Rethos education program is funded in part by the Arts & Cultural Legacy Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.

Refund policy: Refunds are provided up to seven days prior to the class. Please email if you would like a refund on your purchased ticket. Rethos will arrange to refund the cost of the class.

Cancellation policy: A class may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Decision to cancel a class will be announced to registrants at least 24 hours before the class' scheduled time. Refunds will be provided to all registrants.
