The Wood House

Built in 1913 and designed by John Lloyd Wright, the 19-year-old son of Frank Lloyd Wright. This was young Wright’s first house project and was based on his famous father’s Ladies Home Journal house of 1906.


The house was also contractor W.W. Bekler’s first project and was complete at a cost of $3,200 plus a ten percent architecture fee.


This home is considered Prairie style or Four-square– note the deep overhang, band windows, and low hipped roof.
