Mid-Century Modern architecture became popular after WWII through the 1970s. This minimalistic, functional style features open floor plans, clean lines, muted curves, large windows and indoor-outdoor living spaces. Arlington, which became Jacksonville’s fastest growing neighborhood after the construction of the Mathews Bridge in 1953, boasts an impressive concentration of Mid-Century Modern architecture.
Frank Lloyd Wright, considered the father of modern architecture, inspired many talented local architects, including Robert Broward, George Fisher, William Marshall, William Morgan, Ted Pappas and others. Their inspired designs still grace the beautiful Arlington community and are featured in our home tour each year.
