Opening May 10

Tours begin at Columbus Area Visitors Center, Columbus, Ind.

Prepare to feel self-conscious about your own abode after taking a tour through this landmark of mid-century modernist architecture and design. The former home of industrialist/philanthropist J. Irwin Miller and his wife, Xenia Simons Miller, it features a remarkable living room (with a swanky, sunken conversation pit), great views, a one-of-a-kind fireplace and a beautiful path of honey locust trees separating the home from the surrounding acreage.

Don’t go knocking, though. The tour begins at the Columbus Visitors Center and is available either on its own or as part of a day that includes other architectural treasures in this remarkable town. Details here.
