What a treat to have a copy of an original Eichler brochure designed specifically for Sacramento!

This awesome circa ~1956 find comes to us via Dane Henas, who received the scanned version from Marty Arbunich (co-author of "Eichler: Modernism Rebuilds the American Dream" and Eichler Network Director and CA-Modern Magazine Publisher). Thanks for sharing, Dane (+ Marty)!

Articles regarding Sacramento Eichlers

I'm finding very little has been written regarding our small enclave here in Sacramento. However, here are a few articles, which of course feature local Eichler enthusiast and owner Dane Henas :)

Please see links below, some which are in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format.

We're in escrow!

This Eichler was one of approximately 60 homes designed by architects A. Quincy Jones + Frederick E. Emmons and built by developer Joseph Eichler in Sacramento circa 1955, which we purchased from the original owners' estate.

I'm starting this blog to:
- document our adventures preserving this mid-century icon;
- document the history and current state of Eichlers in Sacramento;
- identify helpful and interesting resources;
- report on other modern architecture and design in Sacramento.
