Columbus, Indiana: Miller House and Garden
Ever wondered where the conversation pit got its start? You'll find out at this modernist home that opened for public tours last year.
Known for its amazing architecture, Columbus offers another must-see gem with this one-story marble and glass showplace built in the 1950s (the first house to be named a National Historic Landmark while its original owners still lived there). The highlights: the groundbreaking conversation pit, the tulip chairs surrounding the white marble dining table, and the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the grounds and the Flat Rock River. Admission charged (800/468-6564; columbus.in.us).
