G.B. "Captain" Cooley, son of a riverboat captain and an amateur boater himself made his fortune in the laundry business. When it came time to build a suitably substantial home he turned to one of the leaders of the architectural avant-garde, Walter Burley Griffin. It is likely that Marion Mahony, Griffin's wife and an outstanding draftsperson who worked on many of Frank Lloyd Wright's most important Prairie designs, was involved in the design of this house as well. The design was completed in 1910 but was not built until 1926. The main house itself has outside dimensions of approximately 31' x 89', including terraces.
This is a large drawing set with 29 sheets in 2 formats. The property was surveyed twice, thus the 2 formats.
