Long Description:
The following excerpt can be found in tour 11 of the "WPA Guide to Illinois":
The evolution of Wright's philosophy of open planning and harmony of site and structure is documented by a series of Oak Park houses (all private residences), several of which are along Forest Avenue. The N.G. MOORE HOUSE (1894), 329 Forest Ave., is a compromise between Wright's ideas and Mr. Moore's taste for half-timbered English cottages. Next door is the more typical HILLS HOUSE (1906). Others include the ARTHUR HEURTLEY HOUSE (1902), 312 Forest Ave., at the rear of which is the finest and oldest of the magnificent oaks along Forest Avenue; the GALE HOUSE (1905), 6 Elizabeth Court; and the BEACHY HOUSE (1906), 238 Forest Ave.
The Arthur Heurtley House is one of 25 buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1889 and 1913 in the village of Oak Park, Illinois. The house exhibits the horizontal presentation and expansive roof that is typical of prairie style architecture.

This is a private residence so please respect the owners and do your viewing from the sidewalk.
