B. Harley Bradley House

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The B. Harley Bradley House marks the beginning of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School period. This style became Wright's best known and for the next decade after the Bradley House design, Wright's commissions were often derived from this plan and included elements first seen as a unified design at the Bradley House.

Following an extensive restoration, the Bradley House now enjoys the opportunity to be appreciated by architecture fans from around the world. Wright In Kankakee is pleased to offer you the opportunity to tour the Bradley House, browse fine gifts in the gift shop, or host your special event with us.

Frank Lloyd Wright once said "The thing always happens that you really believe in and the belief in a thing makes it happen."

Wright In Kankakee was formed by a small group of community preservationists and philanthropists who believed that a thing could happen - that a community could come together and purchase a magnificent example of early Prairie style architecture designed by America's premier architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Led by the vision of Gaines & Sharon Hall, the stewards of the Bradley House who had the vision to understand the importance of the house to the community and the world, Wright In Kankakee was incorporated in January 2010 and took possession of the property June 30, 2010.

Wright In Kankakee is a not-for-profit corporation organized to preserve the B. Harley Bradley House. We provide public access to the house and promote education about architecture, art, Frank Lloyd Wright, and local history through tours, events, and other educational programs.
