William R. Heath House (Frank Lloyd Wright)


Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and constructed between 1903-1905 (Not for tours-private residence). This is the first residential commission Wright received in Buffalo, this large red brick Prairie style house is situated on a long narrow lot, a precursor to the architect’s famous Robie House in Chicago. Despite being located along the sidewalk, privacy is enhanced by the elevation of the main floor, a low key entrance beside the massive chimmy, and a broad porch accessible only from the house.
