FLW bucket list

Post by MOman2 »

On my life bucket list is to stay at a Usonian FLW home and a prairie home. I will be staying at the Penfield house next month. What would you suggest for my prairie home? I can afford a stay at the Burnham block townhouse but is that really a prairie home? Any suggestions? Thank You

An excellent goal. The Bach house is a favorite of mine. It was restored; anybody know if it's offered for overnight stays ?

Wonderful house, but does Bach qualify as Prairie? It definitely is transitional. I would consider it one of FLW's dalliances with German Expressionism.

I agree is there a true prairie home that one can rent?
As I noted I am considering the Richards duplex but is that prairie?

Yes; I forget that Bach is post-Prairie. He can dally in those pastures all he wants, for me . . .!

Should we rule out Gale---or Fireproof---on stylistic if not chronological grounds ?

Gale is rentable? Which one? There are 3 of them, you know.

Even though it is quite late, ASB should be considered Prairie. At least the duplex apartments; the bungalow is a foretelling of post-WWII suburbia.

Wasn't Cheney available at one time?

I didn't mean Flat-Top Gale was rentable; I was comparing it to Flat-Top Bach. But if Bach isn't Prairie, why is ASBH ?

Cheney hasn't been a B&B for some time now. My wife and I stayed there about 20 years ago and it stopped being available not too long after that.
