S.065 – Edward C. Waller Gates,
Auvergne Place at Lake Street, River Forest, Illinois
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.
Auvergne Place also is home to one of Wright’s seminal efforts, the Winslow Residence (S.024), and you pass through these gates to reach that beautiful home.

Project number: T.9902 (Heinz guide) or T.0108 (Storrer Companion) (encompassed the entire estate; only these structures remain)
