2. Doetschman House, 1934

Perhaps the most unusual house in Riddle Highlands, the design of this house was influenced by the 1933 Chicago World's Fair exhibit "Homes of Tomorrow." Built in 1934, it features the sleek lines of the International Style which was influenced by the Bauhaus School of Design. The original owners were Charles and Frances Doetschman. Charles was the county recorder.

Notice the only surviving original pillar located on the east side of Oak Avenue.
