Side Elevation, photo by Bob Thall An excellent example of Prairie-style architecture, this house evokes the imagery of the Midwestern prairie through its horizontal form and integration with the landscape. It is the city's only surviving building designed by John Van Bergen, a former member of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture firm. Allan Miller, an advertising firm executive, commissioned the house.
