History of the Stockman House
Dr. George C. Stockman met with Frank Lloyd Wright and engaged him to design a home for he and his wife, Eleanor, in Mason City, IA in 1908. The Stockman House is an iteration of Wright’s Fireproof House, which was designed to be constructed of reinforced concrete. The compact, Foursquare design included appendages on opposite sides for an entrance foyer and a sun porch.
