Explore Mid-Century Modern Architecture

Welcome to Quincy’s fabulous mid-20th century design portfolio! Clean lines, bold bursts of color, and streamlined detail: where form meets function. A more affordable alternative to the pre-war elaborate Victorian, Mid-Century Modern architecture refers to the 1945 to mid-1970s era. Efficiently constructed homes appealed to middle-class families who also desired to live in a work of art and reconvene with nature, opting for single-level open concept footprints.

Explore iconic commercial and religious structures which serve as the cornerstones of our community’s mid-mod landscape, along with stunning residential properties meticulously maintained throughout the city. Included are several 1930s Art Moderne homes as well– simply too impressive not to be admired. We’ve narrowed the route to 30 structures, but there are scores more to spy along the way. Enjoy the mini bio of Quincy’s renowned architect, John Benya, plus our signature art card on back.
