Mid-Century Modern Missouri

Tan-Tar-A Turns 50

July 4th marked the 50th anniversary of the opening of Missouri’s Tan-Tar-A resort. The resort was the dream of St. Louis builder Burton Duenke, who was one of the pioneer builders of mid-century modern subdivision homes around St. Louis.

This summer The Lake Today published an article about the 50th anniversary that includes the story of Tan-Tar-A’s development: “Resorting to celebration”.
