Plot Synopsis

10 THAT CHANGED AMERICA is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles how the United States was shaped by ten landmark locations, with each episode focusing on a different type of locale: homes, parks, and towns. Featuring interviews with architecture critic Paul Goldberger, historian Peter Onuf, and others, 10 HOMES THAT CHANGED AMERICA highlights ten homes that transformed residential living, from grand estates such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, to the pueblos of Taos, New Mexico, and the tenements of 19th century New York. 10 PARKS THAT CHANGED AMERICA tells the story of ten innovators who took open canvases of land and transformed them into serene spaces that offer city dwellers a respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life, and 10 TOWNS THAT CHANGED AMERICA takes a look at ten experimental towns that did not evolve organically over time, but instead were designed (or redesigned) from the ground up by architects, corporations, and citizens who sought to change the lives of residents using architecture, design, and urban planning.
The second season of 10 THAT CHANGED AMERICA premiered on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 8pm on PBS (check local listings), with host Geoffrey Baer taking viewers across the country to the legendary streets, monuments and man-made marvels that changed America. The season opener, "10 Streets That Changed America," takes a whirlwind tour of 10 streets that change the way we get around: from Broadway in New York and Wilshire in Los Angeles, to the Boston Post Road and the Lincoln Highway. Find out which 10 streets made the list!
