1958 Commencement Home on North Elm Street
1958 Commencement Home on North Elm Street

This house, built in 1958, was located at 2207 North Elm Street. It was part of a unique Woman’s College classroom experience where twenty-three art and home-economics majors designed and supervised the building of a house. The purpose of the project was to give the students a working knowledge of the challenges of their homes and families. It was supervised by local architect and Woman’s College part-time Art Department instructor, Edward Loewenstein, and was featured in the November 1958 edition of McCall’s Magazine.
