FLW: Houses from 95 years ago

The Milwaukee Journal recently ran an article about six small houses built in 1915-1916. These American System-Built Homes were designed by Wright. The aricle can be read at:



An image from the article is shown below.

They're now ninety-five years old and still look terrific to me.

Many thanks for posting this good
FLW Article. Wife Patty and I were
travelling around North America in
1952, met Mr. Wright at Taliesens
West and then Spring Green. Saw
many of his projects inasmuch as
that was the prime purpose of our
5 month, 25,000 mile camping trip.

These on vacation a few years back, at that time the one story house at the end of the group was in the process of being restored, it was fenced off and pretty much 'stripped to the studs', it seems to be beautifully restored.
