Beachy

Peter A. Beachy House (1906)

The Wright Plus housewalk features eight private homes, three of which are designed by Wright, and three Wright-designed public buildings. The Peter A. Beachy House (1906) and Arthur B. Heurtley House (1902) are Wright designs from the early Prairie period when Wright was seeking to develop a distinctly American architecture. The Harrison P. Young House (1895), remodeled by Wright, is a blend of his emerging Prairie signature with Tudor Revival elements. The three public buildings designed by Wright-Unity Temple, the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, and the Robie House -are National Historic Landmarks.

Redmond hse

A.J. Redmond House (1900)

Also featured on Wright Plus are three homes designed by architect E. E. Roberts: The Joseph Dunlop House II (1897), A.J. Redmond House (1900) and Americus B. Melville II House (1916). The homes exhibit Queen Anne style, Victorian and Classical features infused with Prairie School influences. The Walter Gale House II (1905) by Handy and Cady is a classic Colonial Revival with newly discovered history and the W.H. Yorke House (1886) is an elegant historic home merging Victorian detail with modern uses. Architect research is ongoing for this residence. Both residences are being shown on the housewalk for the first time.
