I know the majority of mid century modern style houses will be found in SoCal. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of anywhere else to find a decent collection of this style home?

Try the book 'Atomic Ranch' -- they list midcentury neighborhoods across the country. There are a couple in the DC area.

In a neighborhood built in the 1950s. Every town has them.

Every city's suburbs have them. That's what people initially left the city for.

Three areas around Houston have a lot of MCM homes:

- Westbury/Meyerland
- Memorial
- Glenbrook Valley

Well, Frank Lloyd Wright was from Illinois (as was Buckminster Fuller), so I'd imagine that there are a good number of them scattered across the Midwest - either in or near the major cities.

Walt Disney was from Illinois, too, but Disneyland is in California.

Mid-century modern Palm Springs is really cool.

Yes, Palm Springs is sprouting with this theme.

As someone else mentioned, most major cities have "layers" of suburbs, and you can easily find this genre. What I like about these homes is simply the quality. They built solid homes in the 50's and even the 60's. Things have changed for new construction, unfortunately.
