Mid-Century Modern Homes Rock in Gresham

By Living Room Realty, May 7, 2019

East Multnomah County has a treasure trove of hip homes and two are on a May tour. 

The Gresham area is a treasure trove of the popular and meticulously designed mid-century modern homes and two of them will be included on a Saturday, May 11, regional tour of these in-demand houses.

“There are some hidden gems in great little neighborhoods” in East Multnomah County, says Marisa Swenson, a Realtor and specialist in mid-century modern homes. She is the proud owner of one of the Gresham mid-century modern homes on the tour.

Swenson’s home was designed by architect Day Hilborn and constructed by commercial builder Paul E Emerick. The other Gresham residence on the tour is a beauty built in 1976 by local mid-century master Robert Rummer.

Although always in demand, mid-century modern homes have enjoyed a major resurgence in popularity recently, brought on in part by the wild success of the TV series “Mad Men” set in the stylish, Kennedy-era 1960s and more recently “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” set in 1958. The clothing, furniture, and other designs figure so prominently in these shows that they essentially become a recurring character.
