Nearby Princeton is home to Berry’s Adeline Prouty Ladies Home, as well as his remodeling of an 1890s commercial building, now home to a Chinese restaurant. Princeton holds other gems, including an excellent Craftsman/Prairie library building by Chicago architects Patton & Young, now being abandoned in favor of newer digs in a remodeled grocery store.

In addition, he sends the view below of an unknown house with PS features. The postcard has no identification of the building, although it is marked “Brand's Studios - Highland Park & Waukegan, Ill.”, and carries a 1910 postmark. If you can identify this house, or have information about Drummond’s River Forest bank, please drop me a line.

Many of the listings in this site have come from architectural surveys or the National Register of Historic Places, and have been included, at least tentatively, because the architectural style is listed as “Prairie School”. I have an occasional surprise when seeing an actual photo of a building whose listing is based on its description somewhere as Prairie School it becomes clear that some buildings are described as Prairie School only because no other designation seemed to come to mind.
As always, I welcome your comments about this site or any Prairie School building.
