S.054 – Ward W. Willits Residence

1445 Sheridan Road, Highland Park, Illinois

 

Directly behind this 1901 design – one of the earliest Prairie-style homes – is a gardener’s cottage with stables, designated as S.055.  In addition to the two Willits projects, Highland Park is home to the Adams Residence (S.108) and the Millard Residence (S.126), both on Lake Avenue.

 

Sheridan Road roughly parallels the Lake Michigan shoreline and runs from Wrigleyville through the North Shore communities.  A few Frank Lloyd Wright homes are found along this stretch of Sheridan (Bach Residence in Chicago, S.193; Glasner Residence in Glencoe, S.109; Brigham Residence in Glencoe, S.184), and many more are within a few blocks of this artery.
