The Schweikher House

605 S. Meacham Road, Schaumburg, IL 60193

History Museums

Historic home built by Paul Schweikher and completed in 1938. Three-room open plan structure with beautiful spaces for living, sleeping and working.

A sophis­ti­cat­ed organic inte­gra­tion of east­ern and west­ern cul­tural sensibilities, the 1937-38 Schweikher House staked its own dis­tinctive posi­tion in the world of Prairie School evo­lu­tion, inter­na­tional mod­ernism, and Wright’s yet-to-be-defined/built Uson­ian invention. A local landmark and also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Schweikher House is open for public tours and offers special events.
