Galesburg Country Homes (1948), Galesburg, Michigan


The Galesburg Country Homes subdivision was designed by Wright in 1947 as a cooperative community. It is one of two cooperatives founded by a group of young scientists employed at the Upjohn Company who prevailed upon Wright to design affordable houses they could build themselves –the other is Parkwyn Village in Kalamazoo.

These are Usonian Houses and were designed to be moderately priced with “a pattern for more simplified and …more gracious living.” Only four Wright-designed houses were constructed in Galesburg.

 
Location: just off Interstate 94, Galesburg, MI 49053
