The B. Harley Bradley House

By: Owen

The B. Harley Bradley House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The house was originally owned and built by B. Harley and Ann Hixson Bradley . In 1913 they sold the house to Mr. A. E. Cook of Iowa. Later the house was turned in to a restaurant named The Yesteryear . The Yesteryear had to close down because the owner got sick.

There are a few reasons I think The B. Harley Bradley House should be considered a wonder of Kankakee. The main one is because Frank Lloyd Wright designed it. The Bradley house had a few owners and was built in 1901 It is still around today. Frank Lloyd Wright made it look so modern when it was built in 1901. It is still used today for charity and other special events.
