Saturday, September 13 at 10 am: TICKETS AVAILABLE

Springfield architect Jack Kline held a lifelong affinity for Yellow Springs, which was reciprocated in numerous commissions. Among these, his modernist residential designs of the 1950s and 1960s, reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian architecture, helped shape the village’s avant-garde aesthetic. Join us on this bicycle tour as we examine the exteriors of some of Kline’s best mid-century designs. A stop at the Vernet Ecological Center completes the tour. Meet outside the Yellow Springs Visitor Center, 101 Dayton Street, on your bicycle. Mobility 3. Tickets are $10 General, $8 Members, and $5 Students. Guided by Kevin Rose. Sponsored by Monica Hasek and Miami Valley Modern.
