House of the Future

The House of the Future at Disneyland, sponsored
by Monsanto, opened in Tomorrowland on 12th June 1957, and
closed in December 1967.
The house was built on a cantilevered design, and
was built entirely out of plastics, and equiped with the latest
(for the 1950s and '60s) in furniture and household appliances,
designed to show what a house of the future may look like.
Eventually by 1967 most homes had caught up with
and overtaken the supposedly futuristic designs, so the exhibit
was removed pice by piece (it proved to be too well built
to be dismantled any other way).
