The 1959 Echo Home

Sponsored by the Charlotte Home Builders Association, the Charlotte Observer and the Charlotte Lions Club, the 1959 Echo Home was a modern dream house, “the last word in living comfort and convenience.” Saturday, June 20, 1959 was the first day the house was open to the public: admission was 25 cents and proceeds went to the Lions Club.
