Dick Link and Andrew Hellmuth, then up-and-coming local developers, platted Westchester Park in 1953. Its rolling hills and strong deed restrictions made it an ideal neighborhood for the architect-designed modern home. Join us as we examine some of the best local works from the mid-century, including houses by Phil Snyder, Jack Kline and two show-homes by Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Meet outside Living Water Church at 1910 St. Paris Pike.
