The Isadore and Lucille Zimmerman residence in Manchester, New Hampshire is a classic Usonian by Frank Lloyd Wright. Seeking to create compact, efficient, and economical housing, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a simplified version of his earlier Prairie style architecture.
The house sits at a diagonal on a 3/4 acre corner lot surrounded by large neoclassical homes. In the early 1950s, when the Zimmerman house was first built, some neighbors were puzzled. They called the small, squat Usonian house a "chicken coop."
Now owned by the Currier Museum, the Zimmerman House is open to visitors for guided tours.
