Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
An architect's own home and place of work provide insights into his ideals and practice that few commissions can emulate. Built and rebuilt by Wright, this is the place where he lived and practiced from 1887 to 1909 in the "First Golden Age" of his long career when he formulated and refined his "Prairie Style."

Condition:
There are no threats to the building at this time.

The flat roofs were restored to prevent further water infiltration into the building.
