"Mayberry Modernism"

Think all the South has to offer is Aunt Bee's fried chicken dinner with Ang and Opey?   Then don't miss George Smart (Triangle Modern Expert Extraordinaire) as he talks about all the cool houses the Triangle has to offer.  This Thursday at 5 pm,  at the Historic Salisbury Station Smart will present "Mayberry Modernism:Why the Triangle is America's Hotspot for Way Cool Houses.  He will point out some of Salisbury's best examples of Modernist architecture including the work of John Erwin Ramsay.   The event is sponsored by The Historic Salisbury Foundation in partnership with Stout Studio Architecture.  It should be a great event so pack up the station wagon (remember the wood paneled siding?) and don't forget to stop and get some Richard's Bar-BQ after the lecture.  Get your Mayberry and Modern Groove ON!

If anyone is shopping for an original MCM John Erwin Ramsay check out this home in Thomasville, NC.

Listed by Jenny Brewer with Keller Williams Realty this house hasn't be mucked about!  Priced at $290,000 this home has 4000 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 3 and a half baths.  This home built in 1957 is a time-capsule of MCM design with terrazzo floors, floor to ceiling glass and original cabinetry.  (MLS 568384 Photo by Jenny Brewer)
