Long Description:
Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1908, the house presents a revolutionary challenge to the very common four-square house of that time. Its open floor plan, with the living room flowing around a central fireplace into the dining room and leading into the veranda, led to the floor plan of the modern American home. The restored home is furnished with Arts & Crafts and Wright designs of its period. It was the first and only Prairie School house designed in Iowa by Wright.
Year Completed: 1908
