Designed by Louis Sullivan with assistance from his junior draftsman, Frank Lloyd Wright, the Charnley-Persky House (1891-1892) is recognized as a pivotal work of modern American architecture.

Located in Chicago, the National Historic Landmark building serves as the headquarters of the Society of Architectural Historians.


This year marks the 130th anniversary of the Charnley-Persky House and the 50th anniversary of its designation as a Chicago Landmark. Join us on November 10 in Chicago as we recognize some of the stewards and architects who have cared for this architectural treasure.
