Florida Tropical House




Beautiful beach houses line the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.  One house in particular really stands out.

The Florida Tropical House sits right along the shoreline in Beverly Shores, Indiana.  Not only is it a blinding shade of bubblegum pink, but it was part of the 1933 World's Fair.  It, as well as three nearby houses, was featured in the Homes of Tomorrow Exhibition.  The stucco house was designed by Robert Law Weed in the Modernist style.

The house is privately owned but open for tours only one day in late October.
