Long Description:
Located 221 S. La Grange Road

Although this house was previously attributed to E. Hill Turnock, even by Wright himself(!), plans found at Taliesin in the 1960's establish this as a Wright design. The exterior is in some ways related to Wright's own home in Oak Park, with the dominant front gable with a cross gable; lunette window on the third floor, and entrance between two octagonal bays.
Year Completed: 1892-3
