56 years ago in October of 1957 the electrical industry launched their “Live Better Electrically” ad campaign to help sell Modern all electric homes known as Medallion Homes. All the lighting, water heating and cooking appliances as well as heating and air conditioning were powered by electricity.
Most of these homes were cutting edge in design and thoroughly Marvelous to behold.
Many survive today and are time capsules of Mid-Century Americana since most were built as tract homes and theme neighborhoods as suburbia rolled out across the landscape in the 1960s and 1970s.
Some of these homes had specialty electrics like intercoms, record players and built in vacuum cleaning systems to add to their modern magnificence!
