Gasoline prices are low. Racine is beautiful in the spring. And Racine has a rich architectural legacy. Wright and Like returns to Racine Saturday June 4, with a special event the evening before. The special event is an illustrated talk highlighting “A Visual Feast of Modern Architecture in Racine over 100 Years.”

The theme this year is “Sixty Years of Organic Architecture: Hardy — Prairie School.” Wright’s lakefront Thomas P. Hardy House (1904/05) has been meticulously rehabilitated.

The Prairie School in nearby Wind Point (Charles Montooth and Taliesin Associated Architects, 1965), our tour headquarters, celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. Montooth designed not only the original semi-circular school building, but also every subsequent addition.

Some of the other confirmed homes and buildings on the tour include:

Louis Marie Hamilton House 001

Edgar Tafel’s Louis and Marie Hamilton House

North Bay Village Hall Dresser 001

James Dresser’s North Bay Village Hall

JRM 3328 N. Main Erickson 001
