The Olmsted Society House Walk is back! In honor of the 150th anniversary of the creation of the General Plan for Riverside by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the Olmsted Society is pleased to host this remarkable event. Tour some of the most iconic and beautiful homes in Riverside. Featured homes include:
Avery Coonley Estate Bed Room Wing, Frank Lloyd Wright (1908). Currently under restoration by its new owners, this fine example of Wrights Prairie Style architecture has emerged from near ruins to its original beauty. This wing has not been publicly viewed for at almost two decades.
Avery Coonley Gardeners Cottage, Frank Lloyd Wright (1908). The Gardeners Cottage, arguably the first modest home designed by Wright for a working man, combines historic features with modern functionality.
Thorncroft, William Drummond and Louis Guenzel (1912). Part of the Avery Coonley Estate and originally the residence for the teachers of the Christian Scientist kindergarten and play house and the Coonleys child, this beautiful home has been extensively restored by the current owners.
Caretakers Cottage, William Drummond and Louis Guenzel (1913). Part of the Avery Coonley Estate and the residence for the caretaker for the teachers residence, note the exquisite windows overlooking the park and river.
The Freeark House, John Vinci and Lawrence Kenney (1975). A stunning International Style home overlooking the Des Plaines River.
L. Y. Schermerhorn House, William Le Baron Jenney (1869). One of the oldest homes in Riverside. One of its unique features is the use of vertical wood board batten. This residence was designed for L.Y. Schermerhorn, a partner with Jenney and John Bogart in the engineering firm hired by the Riverside Improvement Company to implement Frederick Law Olmsteds plan for Riverside. Jenney is known as the Father of the American skyscraper.
