About Eichler Homes:
Eichlers were affordable mid-century modern homes designed to be accessible by the masses. Developed by Joseph Eichler, these homes redefined what was possible in suburbia. Today, they are still stunningly beautiful, and even more modern for their age.

Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco presents the Eichler Home Tour on Saturday, September 6, 2008. Join us for this special self-guided tour which offers design enthusiasts and the general public a look into the world of Eichler residences in Palo Alto. All proceeds from the event will support Habitat Greater San Francisco's efforts to build homes and hope in Marin, San Francisco and the Peninsula.

The Eichler Home Tour 2008 program includes 12 Eichler homes in Palo Alto. These homes will include a variety of single-family floor plans and sizes, both original and remodeled. Joseph Eichler was a pioneer builder in post-war California, adapting Frank Lloyd Wright's famous approach to new suburban development in an era of housing shortages. In addition, Mr. Eichler was the first developer in the United States to prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion.
