The Richards Bungalow By Frank Lloyd Wright In South Layton WI

Original Owner: Arthur Richards

Address: 1835 S. Layton

Year Built: 1915

Another of the homes designed by Wright for Arthur L. Richards American System Built series of prefabricated houses. The house is just east of the Richards small house and duplex apartments on Burnham Street. More than a dozen suburban dealers were licensed to sell American System-Built homes. Other homes based on this floor plan were constructed in Oshkosh, WI and Wilmette and Lake Bluff IL. Since the records of the Richards company cannot be located, other examples of homes based upon these designs continue to be discovered.

The Richards bungalow was resurfaced in 1956 with precast coral stone veneer.
