A Guide to the Stuart and Elisabeth Richardson House
Glen Ridge, NJ
The Richardson house was designed by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1941. The house is one of a series of houses, commenced late in life by Wright with the construction of the Herbert and Katherine Jacobs house in Madison, Wisconsin in 1936, which he designed as modest dwellings for middle-class families and which he designated as Usonian homes. To date, the origin and meaning of the term Usonian remains a subject of speculation.
