  Winslow House - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Built on a private street on the Edward Waller estate, the Winslow House was to be Wright's first important independent commission and his first attempt at reinventing the traditional house.
In 1894, the Winslow house was a marked departure from the traditional homes in the Oak Park/River Forest area.
At the rear of the house is a stable/studio that in early years had a tree growing through the roof.

 Magazine Antiques: Careswell - history of Winslow House, Marshfield, Mass
By 1640 Winslow and the other property owners in Green's Harbor wheedled, cajoled, and bullied the Massachusetts General Court (legislature) to be allowed to create a new township within the colony separate from the town of Plymouth.
The weight and continuity of Winslow family tradition and the conflation of house and estate going back to 1632 can be seen in the fact that Isaac's new house, built after Governor Edward Winslow and Governor Josiah Winslow were long dead, was still referred to as "the governor's house" two generations later.
As in the earlier case of Josiah Winslow and his dowager mother, Isaac's stepmother, Bethiah Barker Johnson Winslow (1751-1790), whom his father had married after his first wife's death in 1772, probably continued to live in the house until she died in 1790.

Considering that Cape Cod in the 18th century was a region of small farms and fishing ports, the Winslow Crocker House is surprisingly elaborate, with rich paneling in every room.
The result is a colonial Cape Cod house with a 20th-century flavor.

 Prairie Style homes
The prairie house drew on the newer metropolitan notions that home life was not to be intruded upon except by invitation, that it was separate though not totally withdrawn from the rest of the community, and that contact with the outside world should be at the residents' discretion (82).
Wright himself claimed that the interior of the prairie house held the greatest significance, and the outside "was there, chiefly because of what happened inside (10)." With his "open plan",he sought to "beat the box," to escape the Victorian compartmentalization which he claimed was stifling the American family.
The Winslow House dining room's formality and decorum has incited the phrase "quasi-religious" to describe it because it approaches the family ritual of dining as if it were a religious ceremony.

William Winslow, publisher of House Beautiful, was Wright's first client when he opened his own architectural practice in Chicago in 1893.
The William Winslow house has been called an essential step in the development of the Prairie House because it was here that Wright first developed the exterior forms and elevational concepts that would allow him to begin to give shape on the outside to the dynamic qualities of interior space.
This drawing of the Winslow House was prepared in 1910 for use in the porfolio of Wright's drawings published in Germany by Ernst Wasmuth.

 Winslow Crocker House Tour
The house, built in the 1770s, is an excellent example of Colonial style architecture with its symmetrical facade, uniform pattern of windows, center chimney on a gabled roof, and classical details over the door and windows.
The house, originally built in a nearby village, was brought to its present site in 1936 by Mary Thacher who restored and modified it somewhat with Colonial Revival good intent.
Inside the house Mary Thacher made a number of cosmetic changes — most notably removing all the paint throughout — which, while appealing to her Colonial Revival tastes, were completely unauthentic.

 Winslow Crocker House | Museum/Attraction Review | Yarmouth, MA | Frommers.com
Not only is it a lovely example of the shingled Georgian style, it's packed with outstanding antiques -- Jacobean to Chippendale -- collected in the 1930s by Mary Thacher, a descendant of the town's first land grantee.
Thacher's son, John, a colonel, built the house next door in around 1680, and -- with the help of two successive wives -- raised a total of 21 children.
All the museum-worthy objects in the Winslow Crocker House would seem to have similar stories to tell.

A fine public turnout afforded many young (and not so young) impressments, the opportunity to be drilled by our Sjt Condrick at the Winslow House in Marshfield.
The pine training muskets have proved to be a great tool for closer interaction with the public, as they get a real hands-on feel of what it is like to be drilled by such a sympathetic and sensitive being as a British Drill Sergeant.
This is a great event to interact with the public, and to clear up many of the misconceptions about the King's forces that the unenlightened own…and plant the seeds of recruitment as well.
