The Stockman House is the third iteration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fireproof House, a plan published in the April 1907 issue of the Ladies’ Home Journal. For 80 years, the Stockman House was located at 311 1st Street SE, until 1989. The house was then sold and moved to its current location of 530 1st Street NE, just north of the Rock Crest/Rock Glen Historic District.
