B. Harley Bradley House

The House that Changed the Face of
American Architecture in 1900

Designed by
Frank Lloyd Wright

This is the first house of Wright's Prairie Style design. For the next decade, his commissions were often derived from this plan and included elements first seen all in one location at the Bradley House. 

Following an extensive restoration (2005-08), the Bradley House is now appreciated by architecture fans from around the world. The home is sited on one-acre on the banks of the scenic Kankakee River.  Next door is another Wright design, the Hickox House, a private residence. These homes are  the western edge of the Riverview Historic District, an area of beautiful homes on tree-lined streets.

You can now TOUR the Bradley House, BROWSE for fine gifts in the Gift Shop or HOST your special event surrounded by the gracious designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.  RENTAL INFORMATION is available by clicking here


Take Advantage Of This Opportunity

To Help Keep The Bradley House Public

For the first time in its 116-year history, the B. Harley Bradley House, now fully restored to Frank Lloyd Wright’s original vision, is totally available to the public to visit and experience. Making it so accessible is Wright In Kankakee, the nonprofit organization which owns and manages the House.

The Bradley House is an immense treasure for the Kankakee County area and all the world. There have been visitors from over twenty countries. Keeping it open and operating are Volunteers, Members, and Donors. Their many and varied contributions include money to
help retire the $1.7-million mortgage, due in 2020.

Now a remarkable opportunity is here: for a limited time, a private donor will match all contributions made to pay off the mortgage. The fundraising drive, the First Prairie
House Campaign
, is underway. We are very grateful for the many donations we already have received. But we still have a considerable way to go.

So please help today: Click the Donate bar on the left side of this screen and make a generous contribution to the First Prairie House Campaign.

The success of the Campaign means the B. Harley Bradley House will remain the
world-class architectural landmark it now is, available for all to share.
