Frank Lloyd Wright’s Style Restored

The home at No. 2 Millikin Place in Decatur, Ill. is a Frank Lloyd Wright original. Built in 1910 by the architectural legend, the home is one of the last examples of open style Prairie School architecture. Wright also designed the furniture and decor for the home, but when the house was sold in the 1980s, the furnishings landed in the Milwaukee Art Museum’s collection. The home’s newest owner is now working with the museum to create replicas of the original sconces, rugs, doors and other details. Those curious to see the restoration in progress can tour the home next weekend at Decatur’s Heritage & Holly Historic Home Tour.
