Description 

The Prairie house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1904, is important in the development of a large, private residence which contains open and versatile interior spaces. This concept of a single-family dwelling was not prevalent in American domestic architecture until thirty years later. The house was designated a Buffalo and Erie County Historical Site, November 16, 1971. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS NY-5611)
