S.185 Ravine Bluffs Development, Glencoe, Illinois

 

Photographed on May 10, 2012.

 

Ravine Bluffs contains several Wright buildings:

 

Sherman M. Booth, S.178

Sherman M. Booth remodeling, S.187

Charles R. Perry, S. 188

Hollis R. Root; S.189

William F. Kier, S.190

William F. Ross, S.191

Lute F. & Daniel Kissam, S.192

 

The subdivision is anchored on three corners by large sculptures, which Prof. Storrer has numbered as S.185.1, S.185.2, and S.185.3 (shown here). The sculpture at the cul-de-sac (S.185.1) is in a partially wooded area by 277 Sylvan Road, and is the only original left. The other two have been rebuilt.

 

There is also a bridge designed by Wright (S.186).
