Prairie school style originated in Chicago, Illinois, in the late nineteenth century, and developed in tandem with the Arts and Crafts movement in England. Designed to blend in as a natural part of the terrain, Prairie style homes display strong, horizontal lines, low-pitched roofs, and natural materials meant to unify the structure with the flat, midwestern landscape. Simplicity and function were guiding principles. The twelve Illinois and Wisconsin homes pictured in this calendar present some of the signature work of the foremost architects of the day, among them Frank Lloyd Wright, George Washington Maher, and William E. Drummond.
