MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A nonprofit group that already owns two other Frank Lloyd Wright houses on one Milwaukee block has bought a third.

Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin hopes to turn the block of six Wright homes on Milwaukee's south side into an interpretive site for visitors. There are four duplexes and two bungalows.

The homes are known as American System-Built Homes and were built between 1915 and 1916 as prototypes for Wright's ideas for standardized home design.

The group now owns an example of each of the three System-Built models Wright designed for the street.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the home will be rented as the group restores a duplex at the other end of the block and raises funds for the project.
