Virginia Lustron Page
Arlington County Virginia completed a much publicized "rescue"
of a Lustron home known as the Krowne Lustron. Subsequently, they
published an attractive publication "The Illustrious Lustron,
A Guide for the Disassembly and Preservation of Americas Modern
Metal Marvel." This is the most informed, modern guide on disassembling
and moving a Lustron. Visitors to this site can download this guide
at no cost. With ever rising real estate costs, virtually all the
11 Lustrons of Arlington are threatened with demolition. The Krowne
house, named after its donor, may be the only survivor. The Krowne
house, in highly original condition when disassembled, remains in
pieces, looking for a permanent place to be re-constructed. In June
2008, it may be resurrected for a few months at the New York Museum
of Modern Art.
