Description 

Completed in 1918, this architectural gem, small in scale, exquisite in detail, makes a strong individualistic statement in a busy small town Midwestern setting. Executed late in the career of Louis Sullivan (1856-1924), this building is one in the series of his commissions that has profoundly influenced 20th-century architects. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 22, 1977
