On this last weekend of summer, we thought we'd keep things cool. And not much is cooler than the classic homes of the mid-20th Century.
Midcentury Moderns have it all: great bones, lots of light, innovative materials and a connection between inside and out that can make them feel much larger than their actual square footage. Then there's that unmistakable Sixties vibe that never goes out of style (just ask Banana Republic and NBC). Click through the gallery to see midcentury properties from across the country. And remember to stay cool this Labor Day Weekend.

So fret not, hipsters -- while Don Draper and the gang might be on hiatus until next year, the bitchin' homes that evoke the turbulent era are trapped in amber in the slides that follow. Click on for some far-out listings.
