Addresses for FLW Houses on Chicago's North Shore

Post by pharding »

On Tuesday I am giving a FLW tour to an art historian and her husband from Washington DC. Is there a good source for addresses or GPS coordinates for FLW properties?

The Storrer books have most of the addresses and maps.

If you don't have the books, my website has all the properties listed. You have to click on each one to get an address though (no GPS coordinates). Here is the geographical listing - scroll down for "Chicago area & North Shore"; I don't have a separate North Shore list.

Keep in mind there are a few Chicago city properties on the North side near the lake (for example, S.193, Emil Bach).

There is also the Wright Guide app (I don't know if there is an Android version) it is Storrer based product. Organized geographically with map integration. Each property also shows what else is close by.

In case you want to take an occasional side trip, "Walter Burley Griffin in America," by Mati Maldre, lists his work by address.

Hi I think there is the strong possibility the app version is not compatible with your device, So I think you have to checked it on other device if this work then the problem in your device not in the guide app.
