Frank Lloyd Wright Built This Home For The Millard Family In Highland Park, IL

Original Owner: George Madison Millard

Address: 1689 Lake Ave, Highland Park

Year Built: 1906

The house is surfaced with horizontal board and batten; Wright frequently used this wall covering for his all wood houses. The photograph below shows the cantilevered bedroom over the first floor dining room, and the interesting way the plan steps out further away from the street.

The Millard’s moved to Pasadena, CA in 1908. After her husband’s death, Alice Millard had Wright built another house for her, known as La Miniatura, in Pasadena.
