Around Waterloo

The Russell (Rensalaer) House, built in 1861

The Snowden House, built around 1891

These are both fine houses, without being grand. These are from inside the Russell House:

The armchair in the servant's room had dogs heads for arm rests. Quite a lot of the family's clothes are around the house.

In the same modest spirit, in a sense, is Cedar Rock, the Walter residence by Frank Lloyd Wrightat Quasqueton. You get to the house courtesy of John Deere. En route


Only a couple dozen of these red tiles were affixed to Wright houses; they were reserved for the houses he supervised closely, right down to the cooking pots. Above the second chair below, right in the middle of the back, the two windowpanes join with just barely a seam showing, the same fine style we saw at Fallingwater.

This is how I see myself in a Wright house.

Quasqueton has a splendid Civil War memorial and decorated the cemetery beautifully for July 4
