Arthur Heurtley House, Oak Park Illinois, Frank Lloyd Wright architect

Arthur Heurtley House

318 Forest Avenue Built 1902

America's most–acclaimed architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, launched a revolution in design with the construction of the Heurtley House in 1902. Wright, who claimed that, “music and architecture blossom on the same branch,” had inaugurated an organic method of design that was to transform architectural tastes worldwide.

“Widely recognized as a critical work in the history of modern architecture both nationally and internationally, the Heurtley House is understood to be the first fully mature Prairie style house. It marks a pivotal point in the early development of the noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright.”
– Bruce Babbit, Secretary of the Interior, at the designation of the Heurtley House as a National Landmark, March 2001.
