I always love a good homes brochure, and Mike Brown at RetrOKC recently passed on one he found at an estate sale not too long ago.  It advertises Ferguson’s Hill Crest Heights neighborhood, which is located between S. Kentucky and Blackwelder and SW 59th and SW66th:

The modest but well-cared-for neighborhood began being developed in 1952 and homes were constructed throughout the decade.  Most of the homes featured three bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, and one-car garages — here are more amenities they offered:

The homes in Hill Crest Heights were built in a variety of styles, from quaint cottages to ranch style to even a modest mod here and there:

The brochure includes six model homes that were available for touring.  All were located on SW 61st Terrace.

Plan 1488-C sold for a whopping $13,850 and featured two exaggerated a-line windows in front that evoked the popular Storybook style:

Here’s the 1488-C today:

The 1486-A was designed for lovers of gingerbread:

The home today:

Next up is Plan 1511-A, a modest ranch:

And the home today:

The fourth model home is quite similar but offers a larger living room and has no dining room:

Here’s the model today:

The L-shaped fifth model features a compact plan that sold for $13,100 in 1961:

The house now:

The last model, 1485-B, combines the living and dining areas and contains a closed off kitchen area:

And here’s this cutie now:

The back cover of the brochure features ads from local businesses:

Good stuff!
