Closter to open historic house to public beginning starting next monthPosted: Updated:
Closter is set to open a World War II era house to the public.
The historic Harold Hess Lustron House on Durie Avenue is one of the few remaining homes built by architect Carl Strandlund.
Strandlund’s goal was to provide inexpensive housing for World War II veterans.
The home is made of steel frames and aluminum panels.
The borough has been working to restore it to its original state.
"It's an opportunity to preserve something, some of the history of our town, some of the history in the United States, and this clearly ranks among the top properties that need to be restored and continued for historical purposes," says Mayor John Glidden.
The home will open to the public starting in December on the second Saturday of every month.
