S.039 – Henry & Lily Mitchell Residence,

905 (South) Main Street, Racine, Wisconsin

 

Photographed on May 10, 2012.  Racine is home to several Wright designs, notably the nearby S.C. Johnson Company’s headquarters.  Main Street runs north/south, roughly parallel to the Lake Michigan shoreline, and is home to two Wright designs.  If you visit the Johnson company buildings and drive the six short blocks to the lake, you will first encounter the Thomas P. Hardy residence (S.115) at the corner of Main and 14th Street.  Five blocks north, at 9th Street, is found this 1894 design.  It is located on the corner, which affords many excellent views. 

 

Omitted from early editions of Prof. Storrer’s works, this house was added to his guidebook when restoration of the home revealed Wright’s involvement.

 

There is a stable/garage at the rear of the property in an identical style.
