ChronoPoints | Bullitt House
ChronoPoints is an initiative at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training dedicated to digitally documenting historically significant mid-century structures and artifacts. Our mission is to record a “life history” through the capture of digital data and by contextualizing it through contemporaneous photographs, documents, and oral histories of individuals associated with the artifact or building.

About This Project

While the “Bullitt House” itself dates to 1906, the structure’s interest to ChronoPoints stems from its significance to 1960s popular culture.  The 1968 motion picture Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen, is an excellent representation of the ‘anti-hero’ character that was gaining popularity during the 1960s. It remains a classic movie due to its influence on crime dramas and for its iconic car chase sequence.
