The Frank J. Baker House is a Prairie School style house located at 507 Lake Avenue in Wilmette, Illinois. The house, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, was built in 1909. The two-story house has a "T"-shaped floor plan and is similar in design to Wright's Isabel Roberts House. The house's two-story living room features a brick fireplace, a sloped ceiling, and stained glass windows along the north wall; it is one of the few remaining two-story interiors designed by Wright.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 8, 1974.[1]
