Robert P. Parker House

1019 Chicago Ave.
Oak Park, IL

Among the historical houses in Chicago, three Frank Lloyd Wright designs on Chicago Avenue stand out as a bit different from what many associate with the architect. All feature irregular roof composition with high pitches and polygonal dormers and turrets. This house was built in 1892, on speculation, by a real estate agent named Thomas Gale. It was purchased by attorney Robert P. Parker.

Historical Significance:
The house was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in December of 1973 as a contributing property to the Frank Lloyd Wright-Prairie School of Architecture Historic District.
