S.??? – ASBH Series AA house by A.B. Groves Building Company,

2107 West Lawn Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin

 

LINK TO DISCUSSION OF AMERICAN SYSTEM-BUILT HOMES

 

The saga of the American System Built Homes continues a century after they were built.  This house had been rumored in small circles to have been a Wright design, but it took until 2015 before investigation confirmed the layout and design – as well as the existence of some minor supporting paperwork in the Taliesin West archives.  This house has now been confirmed as a Series AA model built in 1917. 

 

The quest to prove its heritage is discussed in an excellent article on the Wright in Wisconsin website. 

 

I have not determined a Storrer catalog number (“S.” number) for this property.  Prof. Storrer does not have a pre-set base number for Series AA homes.
