DOCOMOMO OREGON: KAEN HOUSE EVENT

Located in Oregon City, the 1958 International-style home was designed by Dimitri Alexis for Edward & Helen Kaen. Cocktails from Townshead's Distillery and generous hors d’oeuvres will be provided!

The program will begin with a short history of the house by Kristen Sandberg, followed by a presentation from Tina Buescher on board games of the 1950s and 1960s and their impact and response to society/culture. Afterward, guests can tour the house, play some board games, or enjoy cocktails while overlooking the breathtaking views of the Willamette Valley. Mt. Hood, and Oregon City the home offers.
