Harry D. Page House
21 South Rock Glen
Mason City, Iowa 50401-3936

Walter Burley Griffin, 1912

This house and the Arthur Rule House were the first Prairie School residences in Rock Glen. Page was the owner of a lumber yard who also had preliminary designs for this site made by Purcell & Elmslie.

A garage has been added on the street side of the house, and the mullion between the two central living room windows has been removed to create a picture window. The Rock Glen face of the house is pictured on the cover of the paperback edition of Brooks’ seminal book The Prairie Style: Frank Lloyd Wright and His Midwest Contemporaries.
