A rural Wisconsin schoolhouse designed by the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright has been sold for $305,000.
Clyde W. Engle, a banker from Chicago, placed the highest bid for the Wyoming Valley School, which is believed to be the only elementary school in the nation designed by Wright. The 32-year-old building was put up for auction by the River Valley School District. (See Education Week, Nov. 8, 1989.)
Michael Manning, the district's superintendent, said Mr. Engle has not disclosed his plans for the school. The banker was among 14 bidders for the building.
Under the terms of the auction, the town of Wyoming will have until Dec. 4 to decide whether to match Mr. Engle's bid.
