Can anyone list all of the buildings erected by the Avery Coonley in Riverside, with their addresses and architects? I know about the three Wright buildings, but William Drummond built there as well. I'm not certain of the function of these buildings, nor their street addresses.



Thanks!



John

For street addresses of the Wright buildings, see Storrer. The Playouse is a little hard to find, because some unrelated houses, on lots subdivided from the original Coonley estate, stand between. Anyway, it faces the river straight east of the main house.



Two other Coonley buildings stand nearby. I don't have addresses. One is a large Drummond house, unmistakably prairie style, northeast of the main house, north of the Playhouse. It was originally apartments for the teachers, since remodeled into a single house. The Drummond gardener's cottage is another prairie building just across the street to the west of the Drummond house. The story is that they built it after the gardener's children were born and the Wright building became too small.
