William E. Drummond House, 559 Edgewood Place, River Forest, Cook County, IL
Significance: This house was designed by William E. Drummond for himself. It is typical of that style of architecture known as "Prairie School" as evidenced in the free-flowing open plan, the emphasis on the relation of indoors and outdoors, the hard stuccoed surfaces accentuated by dark wood trim, the emphasis on geometrical design and the flat slab roof is typical of Drummond's early work. Drummond, a member of the Wright studio from 1899 to 1909-10, was on of the most talented and sensitive architects of the Prairie School.
