Rev. Jesse R. Ziegler House
Jesse R. Ziegler House in Frankfort, Kentucky
|Architectural style:||Prairie School|
|Added to NRHP:||May 3, 1976|
The Ziegler house is the only Frank Lloyd Wright structure built in Kentucky during the lifetime of the famous architect. The design came from a chance meeting between Ziegler and Wright while both were traveling to Europe in late October 1909. They struck up a conversation and the commission of this structure, completed the following year, was the result. The structure is a typical example of Wright's "A Fireproof House for $5000".
