The Charlotte Museum of History will be hosting the 8th annual Mad About Modern Home Tour on Saturday, September 28th from 10 AM to 4 PM. The tour typically features homes exclusively in South Park, due to the many modern homes in the area. This year’s tour features five homes spanning four different neighborhoods – Cotswold, Myers Park, Plaza Midwood, and Oakhurst. The self-guided tour offers insider access to the best examples of midcentury modern architecture and design in the Charlotte area. The Mad About Modern Home Tour won Charlotte Magazine’s 2019 Best of the Best (BOB) Award for Best Home Tour.
