Frank J. Baker House, Wilmette, Illinois, Frank Lloyd Wright architect

Frank J. Baker House

507 Lake Avenue, Wilmette built 1909

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Baker House was built at the same time as the Robie House in Chicago. FLW would ride on horseback from his Oak Park studio to Wilmette to oversee the construction. The homes current owner is architect Walter Sobel. During the Wilmette Prairie School Housewalk last May, Mr. Sobel greeted all the visitors and told us about when he worked for John Van Bergen and knew Frank Lloyd Wright.
