A retired schoolteacher who bought a run-down hovel for $100,000 has discovered she landed the bargain of a lifetime: Experts have verified that her home was built by Frank Lloyd Wright.
According to The Associated Press, Linda McQuillen in Madison, WI, learned that her home, built in 1917, is an American System-Built Home—the famed architect’s first effort to bring high design to an affordable level for the masses. Factory-built and assembled on site, it is one of just 14 such homes still standing, and one of only 532 houses Wright built in total before his death in 1959.
