Dr. A W Hebert House Remodeling, 1902

1014 Hinman St, Evanston IL


The A W Hebert House in Evanston, Illinois was not an original Frank Lloyd Wright work, but an example of his remodeling power. Wright gave the house a more of a Prairie mode by enclosing the front porch and extending the eaves of the roof line. A fire in 1959 destroyed much of Wright's new design but it was later restored.


Dr. Hebert was Frank Lloyd Wright’s dentist, and it is likely that Wright’s work for Hebert was an exchange for debts he owed to Hebert. Wright remodeled at least three other properties for Dr. Hebert in Evanston.
