On September 6, the SAH Heritage Conservation Committee wrote a letter in support of efforts to preserve the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Frederick Bagley House in Hinsdale, Illinois. Built in 1894, the Bagley House is an important example of Wright's early work.

On September 14, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy reported that the Bagley House had sold to preservation-minded buyers.
