Francis J. Woolley House (FLW)

This house, built for attorney Francis Woolley in 1893, is typical of Wright's early designs of low-cost residences. Its high pitched hip roof, polyginal and rectangular dormers, polygonal bay windows and foundation walls of rough stones laid in irregular courses are reminiscent of the picturesque manner of Wright's first teacher, Joseph Silsbee.
Originally, the house was surfaced with narrow clapboards, some of which are still exposed on either side of the front steps.
