PRE-SALE Smoky Mountain Modern: The Architecture of Hubert Bebb by Greg Case (Hard Cover)
Since its inception in 1934, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has consistently ranked as the most visited national park in the United States. Many visitors approach the park through its northern entrance at the resort town of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
In 1950, as the park grew more popular and demand for food and accommodations increased dramatically, an architect from Illinois Hubert Bebb, moved to Gatlinburg to build a career that spanned three decades. During that time Bebb, and those led by his modernist vision, almost singlehandedly changed the look of the entire town. Millions of travelers slept in motels, ate in restaurants, or simply admired buildings designed by Hubert Bebb. Yet most never knew about the man behind the vision or the scope of his work.
This book celebrates the work of Hubert Bebb through a popular and inexpensive means of quick communication in the mid 20th century— the postcard. Enjoy a road trip back in time to once again savor the work of a master of
mid-century modern design inspired by the
Great Smoky Mountains.
