Built in 1901 this house is located in the Chicago's western suburban of Elmhurst. One time base of right wing hypocrite and former Congressman Henry Hyde. The town that has more Internet porn searches than anywhere else in the country (it's home to an Internet hub). It is also a beautiful town with many gorgeous homes including one designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Henderson house located at 301 S. Kenilworth is an early fully mature example of Frank Lloyd Wright's signature prarie style. Sitting a park like corner lot we get a good look at three sides of this home.

Elmhurst is located about fifteen minutes west of the Oak Park area so if your visiting Wright's homes there this would make a nice side trip. I came across an excellent web page with many interior photos. You can find it here. http://www.steinerag.com/flw/Artifact... This series is presented by ChiTownView & produced by MindsiMedia. We have several channels on YouTube and other video sharing outlets you can access all of them from our web portal at http://www.mindsimedia.info/ ChiTownView also has our Wright videos presented together in a playlist with some other videos about Wright. You can find that here. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=... We present these clips not as a definitive and detailed study of each house but a quick look at these magnificent homes and a guide to those who are traveling to this area to view them. Most of Wrights homes are locate in four suburbs of Chicago's near west side; Oak Park, River Forest, Riverside & La Grange. They all offer a wide variety of dining,shopping and cultural experiences besides the designs of Wright.
