Kirby T. Snyder House, 1915. Although not quite up to the standards of Frank Lloyd Wright or Purcell and Elmslie, this house presents many familiar Prairie elements: bands of casement windows with geometric decorative patterns, overhanging eaves and blocky, asymmetrical massing.

Inside however, the house develops a split personality on the first floor, portions of which feature deluxe details that are closer in spirit to Beaux-Arts Classicism than the Prairie Style.

Snyder, who mainly designed schools and churches during his career, later moved on to California.[1]
