STYLE INFORMATION

Prairie

General Range

1900-1920


HISTORIC OVERVIEW OF THIS STYLE

The Prairie style was made popular by early projects of Frank Lloyd Wright in the Chicago area. The new type spread throughout the nation in the first decade of the 20th century and remained popular until the beginning of the Depression. Most Prairie style houses have the form of an American Foursquare. For this project, those American Foursquare houses that feature few Prairie elements are classified separately. The house at 246 West 6th Street is an example of the more common type of Prairie Style house. It has a hipped roof with a decorative dormer. The widely overhanging eaves do not feature brackets or sprockets as was common in earlier decades. Other key Erie examples of these Prairie style houses with a foursquare massing include 456-458 West 10th Street and 447 East 8th Street.
 
The house at 329 West 10th Street is one of the most stylish of all Prairie Style houses in the County of Erie. The house has a hipped roof with widely overhanging eaves. Its centered dormer has a similar roof and narrow windows with a horizontal design. The lower two floors have corners that are expressed as tower-like features; bands run along the wall surface to help emphasize the horizontal nature of the house.
