T. Robinson Bours House

Russell Barr Williamson
1921




Russell Barr Williamson (1893-1964), who spent a few years working in Frank Lloyd Wright's firm, became a leading Milwaukee architect with a career spanning more than four decades. Although he worked in a variety of styles, he designed Prairie style homes in the first decades of his career and was the supervising architect for two of Wright's Prairie style projects--the Bogk House and the American System Built prefab houses built by the Milwaukee developer Arthur L. Richards.
This Prairie style house features the strong horizontal lines characteristic of that style, Roman bricks set on a concrete foundation, bands of leaded glass windows, and a low-pitched tile roof with extended eaves.
