Ransom Buffalow, c. 1918

This is Buffalow's only Prairie School building in the Springfield neighborhood, but it compares very well with his numerous designs in the Riverside-Avondale Historic District across town. In fact, the diamond-shaped pattern in the window muntins is perhaps his most successful display of Prairie-style fenestration (see 3305 Riverside Avenue and 2101 College Street).

This house was moved several decades ago to its present location, and it has suffered from benign neglect ever since. Luckily, it still retains its original tile roof. Neighborhood preservationists remain hopeful for the restoration of this striking house.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 as part of the Springfield Historic District.
