House of the Future Anniversary



58 years ago today, the Monsanto House of the Future was unveiled to guests at Disneyland. The Disneyland Marching Band was on hand to drum up a little excitement about this big white plastic marvel.



Able to identify these Disney-related folks?



And to think this is where it all started:



Note the Richfield Autopia sign, Skyway bucket, and Snow Hill in the background:



See more of this wacky plastic house on my main website.

I vaguely remember the interior of the House of the Future, but definitely remember holding my mother's hand as we were going up the steps to enter it.

Wonderful B&W's! Thanks, Dave.

I wanna see that blueprint! I could just see myself get access to the Disney Archives and saying that the first thing I want to see are al the plans and blueprints for everything!
