Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Pensacola Futuro House with additional information or photos.
This Futuro House, dubbed the “UFO House” on Google Earth, has withstood many hurricanes since it was erected in the 1960s—which is appropriate since the portable space age structure was originally conceived as a ski cabin.
The experimental design was soon hyped as the home of the future, but only less than 100 were ever built, and around 60 still remain scattered across the globe. This Futuro now houses the Pensacola Beach Preservation and Historical Society Headquarters.
Know Before You Go
The house is technically privately owned but few people ever stay there. There are no fences or private property signs tell you no to trespass except on the ramp leading up to the UFO door.
