Fodor's Review

When he designed this house in 1897, Frank Lloyd Wright was still moving toward the mature Prairie style achieved in the Robie House 13 years later. Unlike most of his long and low designs, it has three floors. The top floor has pillars and sculptured nymphs cavorting at the top. As was common with Wright—and very uncommon then and now—the entrance to the Heller House is on the side of the structure. The house is not open to the public.
