“Henry-Kleber House, 112 Glen Road.  Designed by Lawrence Buck, Chicago architect and colleague and competitor of Frank Lloyd Wright, the house was built in 1906 by Christian Henry, prominent downtown Rockford merchant. Now the John Kleber residence, the house has been researched by the Frank Lloyd Wright Institute of Evanston as a significant early 20th-century structure.”
