American Systems Built homes

Post by MOman2 »

[moderator may want to move this to an ongoing American Systems Built homes thread]
Greetings
I have been searching out/viewing Frank Lloyd Wright structures for some 30 years and have documented some 236 sites. Each of the sites I visited having its own folder with my own photos and photos/websites/videos from around the internet.
My next project this coming year is to visit the American Systems Built homes in Illinois/Wisconsin/Iowa
I came across this website http://www.flwright.us/FLWAmericanSystem.htm
which lists some of the homes. I know the Gary IN home burned down.
If anyone has any suggestions regarding this upcoming project I welcome any input/suggestions
Thank You

Munkwitz is long gone.
Stephen M. B. Hunt House II is an upgraded version of Richards Bungalow, done as a one-off by FLW. Richards wasn't involved. It may be somewhat more refined than the others.
I don't know any of the people involved with the Milwaukee houses open to the public, except Barbara Elsner, owner of the Bogk House. She would be an excellent person to contact for information.

MOman2, I’d suggest you reach out to Mike Lilek in Milwaukee, he has been the font of information with the ASBH’s that have been toured during the FLWBC conferences:
