Poplar Road
Prize Home #18


Built using Prize Home winner #18 design. One of two built from this design (the other is 240 E. Park Avenue in Wheaton). Despite being a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom design, the Highland Park version was torn down in 2005 and replaced by new home.


1948 Drawing: The drawing from the book is on page 42 and published by Wilcox and Follett Co. in 1948; the house was designed by Howard J. Uebelhack
