In 1912, San Jose architect Frank Wolfe designed the first of his Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Prairie homes. This style of architecture was new to California. Here are a few of them.
The first Prairie house Wolfe designed was for himself and wife Nellie in 1912. The style was immediately popular and many prominent locals followed.
This house built in 1912 for grocery wholesaler Peter Col and wife Blanche is one of Frank Wolfe's best-known works.
The Mary Burke house, built in 1913, is a store today.
