Introduction

Wright build the City National Bank and Park Hotel in 1910 for a man named Storrer who'd seen Wright's work at the school his daughter's went to. He also had Wright do him a house. I still haven't seen that building. Not as exciting as many of his designs I still liked it. I had seen it on my last trip to Grinnell in the early 80's. It's being restored with plans to open the hotel in 2010.
