Rev. Jesse R. Zeigler House
(Frank Lloyd Wright House)


The design for this house came from a chance shipboard meeting in 1910 of Rev. Zeigler of this city with Frank Lloyd Wright, the internationally known architect. The Presbyterian minister had local contractor Scott begin construction that year. This is an example of Wright's “prairie house,” utilizing open floor plans. See over.
