Notes
Survey number HABS IL-1099
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-138).
National Register Number: 72000456
Significance: This structure, consisting of a group of buildings, includes the first residence of Frank Lloyd Wright built for himself. His home, built in 1889, shows the assimilation of the Eastern "Shingle Style," though giving evidence of an already present tendency to simplify and unify. Similarly, the Studio wing, added in 1895, shows early experimentation with the open plan. Together, the House and Studio are a source and proving ground for ideas and forms which were put to dramatic use throughout Wright's career.
