W. S. MacHarg House

Date: 1891
City: Chicago, IL
Accessibility: Demolished 1926
Category: Residential

The William Storrs MacHarg house was another of Adler and Sullivan’s residential commissions, which were typically assigned to Wright. Like Wright’s own home in Oak Park, it was built in the Shingle style. The design featured rounded arches, a steep roof, and dormers. In place of traditional double-hung sash windows, Wright used out-swinging casement windows, which became a defining feature of his later Prairie houses. The MacHarg house was demolished in 1926.
