    Benny,
    It's probably on Forest Ave. in Oak Park, maybe at the intersection of Ontario or Superior
    It is almost certainly not a Wright design.

    It's at 305 Forest Ave. in Oak Park.

    This is not easy from 1232 miles away.

    Wow! Thanks a lot for your help. How'd you figure that out? (especially since it's not a Wright design!)

    The house was built for Mr. Gordon Ripley in 1885 by an unknown architect. It's an earlier Queen Anne design, definitely NOT Frank Lloyd Wright.

    I'd like to add that the home is not a Wright design because of it's style, it's just not one of his houses. Wright's style evolved and as a matter of fact in 1887, Wright carried out his first design in the Queen Anne Style.
