Introduction There are currently 8 known Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in Indiana, all designed as private residences. Two of them were only discovered earlier in 1996 (by Christopher Meyers), and this page is one of the few places where you will be able to find out about them. Indiana is one of the four states surrounding Lake Michigan that contain the greatest concentration FLW's work in a region, but Indiana has far fewer buildings than the three other states do.

Unbuilt Indiana designs include a cinema complex for Michigan City that was a collaborative effort between Mr. Wright and his son John Lloyd Wright, and the Wolf Lake development of more than 100 years ago.

Much of the information in this Indiana page was obtained from William Allin Storrer's A Frank Lloyd Wright Companion and from Christopher Meyers.

The "Frank Lloyd Wright - Indiana" web page is part of the All-Wright Site - Frank Lloyd Wright Building Guide, which contains geographically organized listings of Wright's works in many states.

Individual building listings:

K.C. DeRhodes House (S.125), South Bend, Indiana, 1906
This is a typical cruciform Prairie house of the era. As of 1978, according to William Allin Storrer, it was being used as a club instead of a residence.

Ingwald Moe House, (Taliesin opus #0531) 669 Van Buren, Gary, Indiana, 1910

Wilburt and Etta Wynant House, 600 Fillmore, Gary, Indiana, 1916

Andrew F.H. Armstrong House (S.260), Ogden Dunes, Indiana. 1939
This two-story brick house has interlocking angles of 30,60, and 90 degrees.

Herman T. Mossberg House (#302), South Bend, Indiana, 1948
This is a two-story brick-and-cypress home with a large churchlike living room

John Haynes House (S.323), Fort Wayne, Indiana, 1950
This is a three-bedroom house built on the T plan.

Dr. Richard Davis House, "Woodside" (S.324), Marion, Indiana, 1953
This home features a very tall peaked roof (and living room ceiling underneath) and is derived from the designs for Mr. Wright's 1922 "Lake Tahoe" project. A few years after Wright designed this house, Dr. Davis and Wright worked on designs for a hospital for Marion; a project that was ultimately taken over by Eero Saarinen. Dr. Davis was an assistant surgeon to Dr. C.W. Mayo of the Mayo Clinic, and Wright was a patient of his. The lot for this house includes an FLLW doghouse.

John Christian House "Samara" (S.375), West Lafayette, Indiana, 1954
This home is located near Purdue Stadium, and features a single circular segment within an otherwise angular design
