Are you right about that home's being a Wright?

Even veteran Oak Parkers are sometimes puzzled about whether a house they're walking by was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Peter A. Beachy House is one of those puzzlers, according to the designslinger blog.

Walk the two blocks of Forest Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois located just south of Frank Lloyd Wright's first home and studio, and you'll have the pleasure of seeing the largest single cluster of homes designed by the Prairie School architect to be found anywhere in the world. Some are easily recognizable, with the creator's signature style writ large all over them - some are head scratchers. Is that a Wright, or isn't it? The Beachy House might fall into the not-so-sure category.
