Frank. W. Thomas House (1901)|
210 Forest Avenue
Designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
(This is a private residence and does not offer tours.)
|This house, commissioned by James C. Rogers in 1901 for his daughter and her husband, Frank Wright Thomas, is the earliest of Wright's fully mature residences in Oak Park. Thus, it is the first "Prarie Style" house in Oak Park! It is also the first house by Wright to have its main rooms raised a full story above grade on a high basement. Take a closer look.|
