The North Gallery

The North Gallery of the museum features a display focused on the work done by Wright and Jensen for Sherman and Elizabeth Booth.

The exhibit walks visitors chronologically through the five houses that Wright designed for the Booths beginning in 1911.  Although the first design, a magnificent estate home, proved too costly to build, the other four designs were constructed.

This gallery also features new photographs and materials on Sherman Booth and his work as Wright’s attorney as well as information on Elizabeth Booth, whose extraordinary efforts in the suffrage movement helped secure the right to vote for more than 1 million Illinois women in 1913 – more than seven years before the passage of the 19th Amendment gave women that right on a national scale.
