Herman G. Mallen House (George Washington Maher, 1905): A grand Prairie-style home with impressive poppy pattern art-glass windows and meticulous historical restorations.

Mallen House returns to walk and to original style George W. Maher-designed home extensively restored

his year’s Wright Plus housewalk will feature a home that was last on the walk in 1991. Since that time, architect George W. Maher’s Herman Mallen House has undergone quite a transformation. Brian DeVinck, Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain for the Mallen House, says that attendees this year can expect to see a

home that is being extensively restored by the current owners and says the home is an interesting reflection of Maher’s work. The home on Euclid Avenue in Oak Park was completed in 1905 for the family of Herman and Ellen Mallen, who lived in the house with their four daughters. Mallen founded a furniture manufacturing business with his father and later bought his father out and ran the firm himself. DeVinck says the company was known for manufacturing parlor furniture and made

furniture for almost every room in the house. Ellen Mallen outlived her husband and lived in the house until 1936. An original garage with living quarters for a chauffeur above lasted only 10 years, and today has been replaced with a singlefamily home across the alley from the current garage. Subsequent owners raised a monkey named Mike in the home’s solarium and reportedly donated the monkey to the Brookfield Zoo when they moved. In the 1950s the

owners modernized the house and installed one of the first private pools in Oak Park in the backyard. A 1982 fire damaged the home, and another fire later in the 1980s also did some damage to a small upstairs corner area of the house. The current owners purchased the home in 2000 and have undertaken extensive interior and exterior restoration efforts.

Architectural history Architect George W. Maher spent much of his childhood in Indiana and came to Chicago as a teen, when he apprenticed for the architecture firm Bauer and Hill. Maher later worked with architect Joseph Silsbee in the 1880s, overlapping for a short period of time with Frank Lloyd Wright. While neither worked for Silsbee for long, DeVinck says both were inspired by Silsbee and his shingle-style home designs. Wright’s own Oak Park home is a shingled residence. Unlike Wright, DeVinck says that Maher never really broke out of the interior compartmentalization typical of the shinglestyled homes. Maher homes shared the sense of grandeur found in East Coast-style shingle homes, and he often incorporated a grand staircase in his designs. Maher opened his own firm in the late 1880s and moved to Kenilworth after he married in 1893. He designed over 40 homes in Kenilworth.

rangement and fireplace mosaic of the Mallen House.

Restoration Maher originally designed the Mallen House as a stucco house boasting an interior rich with ornamental details. As was often the case, DeVinck notes the house was “modernized” in the 1950s. Many of the interior details were simplified and removed, including the dining room builtin buffet, plate rack and the original light fixtures. On the exterior, the stucco was covered with brick, and the entry was covered with stone work. The modernization, along with smoke damage from the fires in the 1980s, created a fixer-upper opportunity for the current owners. The current owners have taken on what DeVinck describes as “an incredible amount of work.” They have restored the stucco and roof, opened up porches, replicated original trim, replicated windows, renovated the kitchen in an appropriate style and even had missing spindles replicated for the grand stair case. Aided by the photos taken by the home’s Depression-era inhabitant, they have sought to return much of the house to its original state.

Charles E. Roberts House (Burnham & Root, 1885; Wright remodel, 1896): A majestic Queen Anne with Wright’s hand evidenced in the extensive decorative woodwork.

Burnham and Root, with a good I dash of Wright Architectural archives reflect storied past

By LACEY SIKORA Contributing Reporter

n many ways, Charles Roberts was quite the progressive Oak Park resident in the late 19th century. While he may have been the first U.S. inventor to manufacture an electric car – which is carefully cared for and rumored to still be running in Rhode Island -- he was a bit too ahead of his time to make his fortune in the automobile industry. His electric car and dandelion rake proved disappointments in monetary terms, but his patent for a machine that could create a screw in a single operation made him a rich man.

Roberts founded the Chicago Screw Company with some financial backing from fellow Oak Park resident James Scoville, and in 1904 sold the business for a cool $1 million. You might not know it to look at his house today, but the Queen Anne-style home on Euclid Avenue was also a bit progressive for its time. According to Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain Sue Blaine, the home represents a progressive stage for architects Burnham and Root. Famous for their work on the Field Museum and the Chicago Main Post Office spanning the Eisenhower expressway, their Rookery Building in Chicago also was considered See ROBERTS HOUSE on page B15

Wright added two fireplaces to the three already put in place by Burnham and Root and used similar enamel tile to tie the designs together. \ On the first floor, Wright designed a bedroom for the Roberts, with a full bathroom, closet and pull-down bed. The current owners use the room as a music room. Blaine notes that researching the early changes to the house was a treat, because she had Wright’s drawings for the project. “Wright took Burnham and Root’s drawings and, in colored pencil, he marked what he was doing that was new,” Blaine said. “Unfortunately, as is typical of Wright, what was drawn and what was built didn’t always match. They gave the house a bit more functionality in the building.”

In 1896, Roberts hired Frank Lloyd Wright to remodel the house. Roberts was friendly with Wright and a big proponent of his work. In 1905, when Roberts was head of the From full house to single-family home building committee for the Unity Temple, Blaine’s research showed that for much he pushed to have Wright named as head of its history, the Roberts House was often architect. full of inhabitants.

From stable to garage to home

The Roberts Stable makes Wright Plus debut By LACEY SIKORA

Contributing Reporter

ost likely built in 1885, the structure next door to the Charles E. Roberts House, the Charles E. Roberts Stable has seen multiple uses in its existence. Frank Lloyd Wright Trust research captain Sue Blaine, who oversaw research for both the house, which is also on the tour, and stable says that the stable, now a singlefamily home, has a pedigree as interesting as the larger house next door. The first picture she discovered of the stable is dated 1888, and she says no original architect’s plans survive. “It looks like a typical Midwestern barn with rusty paint and a triangular roof,” Blaine said. “There are a couple of cows, a horse and a carriage in the photo. My best guess is they didn’t use a high-priced architect for the design. They probably thought about how many animals they needed to house and would a carriage fit inside.” Blaine believes SUE BLAINE the stable was most Frank Lloyd Wright Trust likely remodeled research captain when Wright remodeled the main Roberts House in 1896. In 1888, photos show a barn and in 1908, the stable had been moved and part of it rounded out. She hypothesizes that Wright remodeled the stable so that Roberts could use it to house his car. On the second floor, a bedroom was created in the rounded side, while an additional three bedrooms and a bath were on the op-

She guesses that the living quarters in Wright’s redesign were intended for servants. In 1929, Roberts had his son-in-law, architect Charles White, remodel the stable again. Based on Sanborn fire insurance maps, Blaine could see that White moved the stable, turning it 90 degrees so that the rounded part faced east. Blaine says that White’s drawings label much of the second floor “as is,” leading her to believe that he did little to remodel the second-floor spaces. Phone directories of that time indicate that both Charles White and Chapin Roberts, Charles Robert’s son, are listed in living at the property in the “rear,” leading Blaine to deduce the home had now become living quarters for family. Chapin Roberts lived in the home until his death in 1954. A family purchased the home

and, on the death of his parents, the son rented out the house. The third owners, the McBride family, tackled what Blaine calls a “fairly massive” remodel. They converted the second-floor sitting room to a Jack-and-Jill bathroom between bedrooms and combined two hall bathrooms to create a master bathroom. On the first floor, they removed interior walls to create a larger kitchen with a breakfast room and a powder room. An interior art-glass window created by Eve McBride was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s stork panels at Wright’s Oak Park home and studio. Blaine says the current owners have taken pains to renovate and restore the home. They updated the second-floor bedrooms and turned a potting room into an office and mudroom space.

They also used space from a bedroom to create a staircase to the third floor and created an attic play space with wood trim inspired by the trim used in the Wright Home and Studio. Highlighting the curved motif of the east facing wall, the current owners also created a pergola-type carport that sports a curved top. The patio curves to mimic the curve of the house, and the kitchen cabinets are also curved. For Wright Plus, guests will stand in one line for both homes, viewing the house first and then exiting towards the stable. Blaine notes that the Wright Plus volunteers aim to develop a narrative between the Roberts House and Stable for visitors. “They are both really fabulous homes with very different feels,” Blain said. “It’s 1885 versus 1929 in terms of layout.”

Local REALTORS® go to Springfield

M

ost everyone knows that in the Midwest, the Spring Market is typically the busiest time of the real estate year. Our local market is no different. Many of our members are working long hours on behalf of our buyer and seller clients. Your local real estate association, the Oak Park Area Association of REALTORS® (OPAAR), has also been hard at work advocating for the interests of their membership and in turn their clients in Springfield during the peak of the legislative season. OPAAR sent a delegation down to the State Capitol last month to participate in the Illinois REALTOR® Capitol Conference and Lobby Day. This year over 750 agents from across the state met with their local state representatives to advocate on a variety of real estate related topics. Our members met with State Senator Don Harmon, (39th Sen. District) and Camille Lilly (78th District Rep.) both graduates of Oak Park-River Forest High School. We also met with 20th District Rep. Michael McAuliffe whose district encompasses Elmwood Park. In Illinois, a large portion of the legislative calendar is packed into a roughly three week window and we were fortunate that our meetings coincided with this window. Especially during an election year when attention can be diverted, the opportunity to meet face to face and explain our positions on a variety of real estate related legislation was paramount. We advocated against two bills designed to repeal the Rent Control Preemption Act which could allow local governments to enact rent control ordinances and mandate rent control boards in all 102 Illinois counties. Another bill, detrimental to our clients and our industry is attempting to

provide for the sealing of court records regarding eviction actions, thereby preventing landlords from learning if prospective tenants have had eviction actions filed against them. We supported a bill that will mandate that a local government may not conduct a physical inspection of residential property without the voluntary consent of the owner or occupant of the property, or a warrant or court order. This event, which has grown considerably in the last several legislative sessions, was capped with a reception where we were again given the opportunity to discuss issues with our representatives including Governor Bruce Rauner.

Pat Cesario (right) is named REALTOR® of the Year by OPAAR.

The evening before, the annual REALTOR® of the Year banquet was held where Pat Cesario of Gagliardo Realty Associates was recognized by the state association as OPAAR’s REALTOR® of the Year. This award is given to the agent who best exemplifies the professional qualities of a REALTOR®. It is based on a person’s service and leadership in the community and civic affairs as well as activities in the association. When considering buying or selling a home, choose a local expert member of OPAAR. We are advocates for the communities we serve as well as the goals of our clients.

Celebrating 100 Years of helping our clients achieve their dreams!

Contributing Reporter

ast year, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust welcomed more than 150,000 visitors to five Frank Lloyd Wrightdesigned sites: the Wright Home and Studio and Unity Temple in Oak Park, and the Rookery Building, Frederick C. Robie House and the Emil Bach House in Chicago. On May 8, the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, along with the Illinois Department of Tourism, announced an initiative sure to grow the number of Wright tourists in Illinois, where Wright lived and worked during the first 20 years of his career. The new Frank Lloyd Wright Trail Illi-

nois features 13 Wright-designed buildings throughout the state open for self-guided tours. State Sen. Don Harmon, an Oak Park native, helped introduce the legislation designating the trail. “Growing up in Oak Park, I may have taken Frank Lloyd Wright for granted, with a masterpiece around every corner,” Harmon said. “With Wright’s architectural genius clearly recognized around the world, though, we have an opportunity and responsibility to share him more generously.” Illinois Department of Tourism Director Cory Jobe noted that the bill was introduced last year in what was the 150th anniversary See WRIGHT TRAIL on page B25
