Some of the finest examples of Frank Lloyd Wright's early architecture are a train ride from Chicago. The houses he designed in this Chicago suburb show the first traces of his famous work that was to come.

Wright's Studio In 1893, Louis Sullivan himself unwillingly asked Wright to leave the firm after he discovered that Wright had been accepting clients independently from the firm (moonlighting). Wright established his own practice and home in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, IL. By 1901, Wright's completed projects numbered approximately fifty, including many houses in his hometown.
