frank lloyd wright & mason city, iowa: part II

so, a couple posts back i showed you the Stockman House designed by Frank Llyod Wright in Mason City. while driving through the area of town where i though the Wright house to be, i realized that i was on a street lined with Prairie School design homes [and my pictures just don't do these houses any justice but you can click on them for a closer view].

 i just love these beauties! and my favorite was this one...

 can you believe those windows!? the red glass really stands out from the dark trim and white exterior. yummmmm...

the Prairie School architecture in mason city has so much historical and artistic significance that a newly built Mason City Architectural Interpretive Center, located next door to Stockman House, will have its grand opening in May. we are definitely taking a weekend trip up north this summer so we can take one of the walking tours they are organizing.

have a great weekend everyone!
