Inscription. Constructed in 1921, this two-story home is an excellent example of the Prairie School style popular between 1901 and 1925. The early of Frank Lloyd Wright gave rise to the Prairie School style by creating forms that were precise and angular with an emphasis on horizontality. The house, designed by architect Fred W. Hodgson (1886-1930), is an interpretation of Wright's 1907 “Fireproof House for $5,000.” Hodgon's four-square design incorporates Prarie School style characteristics such as a low hipped roof, wide overhanging eaves, stucco-over-masonry walls, windows framed in geometric patterns, and an open floor plan. The offset entrance and porte cochere impart breadth and horizonatlity to the otherwise vertical structure.

Seth. H. Blair (1855-1972) was the original owner of this home. Blair married Ivy Johnson in 1907 and opened Blair Motor company in 1911, selling Ford, Buick, and Chrysler cars in Logan, Ogden, and Salt lake City. He also bred fine Holstein cattle. A prominent businessman and Democrat, Blair was appointed to the Office of Price Administration by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944. The Blairs moved to Salt Lake city in 1945.
