In the first decade of the twentieth century, the bungalow or Craftsman style – characterized by sheltered porches, sturdy wood moldings, earth tone colors, and interiors centered around a cozy hearth – embodied the romanticized ideal of the American home. On this tour we will explore picturesque Tillinghast Place, a tree-lined street with a wonderful collection of bungalows, Craftsman houses, and the last home built by Frank Lloyd Wright in Buffalo. A history of the rise of the bungalow and a brief history of this special north Buffalo neighborhood will be discussed.
