Harlingen High School Level Students Tour Midcentury Modern Homes
Michelle Honl, the group’s teacher, came to the RGV just last year to direct the architecture design courses at both Harlingen High Schools. For the first time students went outside the confines of their classrooms to explore Harlingen’s modern architecture.
RGVMOD’s mission is to share the modern legacy of the Valley, inspire admiration and foment its preservation. What a better way to do this than by offering a tour of modern homes to our future generation. The photos below are from a Harlingen modern home designed by Merle A. Simpson for Charles Parce in the mid 1950s.
