S.065 – Edward C. Waller Gates,

Auvergne Place at Lake Street, River Forest, Illinois

 

Photographed on May 17, 2012.  The gates once marked the entrance to the Edward C. Waller estate (S.047), which included stables (S.066).  There are six rectangular stone pillars, iron fencework (gates having been lost to time), and two lanterns.

 

Waller also commissioned Wright to design Chicago-area apartment buildings (S.030 & S.031) and a bathing pavilion for his northern Michigan retreat (S.166). 

 

Auvergne Place also is home to one of Wright’s seminal efforts, the Winslow Residence (S.024).
