Chandler Museum

The suburban backyard is an American original—an invention so familiar it hardly seems invented at all. This exhibit explores the mid-century backyard from the rise of the suburbs and tract houses to the beauty of postwar garden design and the birth of the environmental movement. Filled with vintage photographs, historic drawings, and fun period advertisements, learn how these spaces became such an integral part of American popular culture. ChandlerMuseum.org
