  • Building Description

    Frank Lloyd Wright's own home and place of work provide insights into his ideals and practice that few commissions can emulate. Built and rebuilt by Wright, this is the place where he lived and practiced from 1887 to 1909 in the "First Golden Age" of his long career when he formulated and refined his "Prairie Style."

    The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio at 951 Chicago Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois, has been restored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust to its appearance in 1909, the last year Frank Lloyd Wright lived there with his family. Frank Lloyd Wright purchased the property and built the home in 1889 with a $5,000 loan from his employer Louis Sullivan. He was 22 at the time, and newly wed to Catherine Tobin. The Wrights raised six children in the home. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and declared a National Historic Landmark four years later.
