Chesterton, Indiana - All-Steel Historic Home

Is this attraction really still open to the public? I'd "heard" that the guy who'd run it as a museum sold it to a new owner, who agreed to preserve the house but I didn't think he was going to continue opening it up. It's still nice to look at from outside anyway.

As long as you're directing people to Chesterton, Indiana, you might as well send them to the excellent metal house tour as a side trip.

The Lustron home (with attached two-car garage), part of the post-WWII home-of-the-future boom, is made of porcelain-enameled steel panels. Due to government restrictions on the steel industry at the time, rather than construct gas stations the manufacturer built these sturdy homes for returning GIs.
