Charles King House Tour Belleville

Tour Mid-Century Modern Homes by Belleville Architect Charles E. King

Following the popular success of our inaugural Charles E. King home tour in 2013, seven King houses will be on tour again in Belleville this October. Many of the homes included on this tour were not part of last year’s home tour.

Mid-Century Modern architect Charles Erwin King practiced in Belleville, Illinois, from 1947 until 1961. In 1991, Architectural Digest named him among the “Top 100 Architects.”

The Belleville Historical Society is very grateful to the owners of each home for opening their doors and sharing King’s work with us. All proceeds of the tour will directly support the historical society’s preservation efforts, including the purchase and restoration of the Heinemann House, and the conversion of the Garfield Street Historic Saloon into a museum.
