The Henry J. Allen House is the only residence in Kansas designed by renowned American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Construction of the home was completed in 1919, making it one of the last Prairie houses designed by Wright. The home was built for Henry J. Allen, a prominent Kansas politician. Allen was governor of the State of Kansas from 1919 to 1923. He then went on to be a United States Senator from 1929 to 1930. The home was nominated for its association with both Frank Lloyd Wright and Henry J. Allen.
