Long Description:
From the Chicago Landmarks site (visit link) :
"The facades display the steeply pitched gables and rectangular bands of windows characteristic of the English Tudor Revival style. Sullivanesque terra-cotta ornament embellishes the spandrel between the second and third floors. The four rowhouses were built as investment property by Robert W. Roloson, a successful grain merchant. The architectural commission was among the earliest received by Wright after leaving the firm of Adler & Sullivan, and the design shows many of his early influences."

Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
