1964. It was an epic year.
The Ford mustang made its debut at the World’s Fair in Flushing, New York. You could own your piece of Americana for a mere $2,268, about the price of a used moped nowadays. The Beatles made their first tour of the United States and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, making the appearance the most watched program in U.S. history, according to Nielson. The term Beatlemania was coined that very day.
Sports Illustrated distributed a special edition of its publication simply called the Swimsuit issue. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream and so did over 250,000 of his supporters at the March on Washington, the nation’s largest demonstration for civil rights. A baby girl named Michelle Robinson was born. Years later she would become the First Lady to the first African American President of the United States.
However, to us, 1964 was a little more personal. It was the year that changed everything for the homebuyer in the Washington Metro Region. Miller & Smith joined the homebuilding scene and reimagined how a home could look and live, defied convention and inspired people to think beyond the common colonial.
You could say that after 50 years, 92 communities, over 400 awards for design and construction excellence and over 20,000 homebuyers later, there’s a lot to celebrate. And we couldn’t agree more.
