Robert P. Parker House
1019 Chicago Avenue, Oak Park built 1892
One of three houses on Chicago Avenue have come to be called the "Bootleg Houses". They were designed in 1892 by Wright while he was still working at the firm of Adler & Sullivan, who forbade him to take outside commissions. Wright's design for these houses were derived from the residence he had designed earlier in 1892 for Robert Emmond of LaGrange, Illinois. They were built later that same year by realtor Thomas Gale, who sold the house to attorney Robert Parker.
