Notes
Survey number HABS IL-1046
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-117).
Building/structure dates: 1897 initial construction
Significance: The house was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for a narrow city lot in the Hyde Park district of Chicago. It belongs to a stylistic category of Wright's work that has been termed "monitor" -- referring to the third story which is raised above the main eaves and capped by a smaller hipped roof. The arcade and frieze at this story display elaborate Sullivanesque ornament and sculptural figures, the latter executed by Richard Bock, an Oak Park sculptor who collaborated with Wright. In 1961, the building was named a Chicago Architectural Landmark.
