RIVER FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Frank Lloyd Wright's famed William Winslow House in suburban Chicago is on the market for the first time in nearly 60 years.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the River Forest house is listed for $2.4 million.

The home was last sold in 1955 and it hasn't been seen publicly since it was part of a Wright home walk in 1979.

Architecture experts say the house that was designed by Wright in 1893 is significant.

Not only was Wright in his 20s when he designed it, the house was his first commission after leaving Louis Sullivan's architectural firm in Chicago. It precedes Wright's introduction of his famed Prairie style construction.

It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.
