Bruser House

-A A +A
1959, George Fred Keck and William Keck. 62 Elmhurst Lane (Riverdale)

Two rectangular volumes of the Donald Bruser house are sited right at the edge of a hill overlooking the Mississippi River valley. The house is two stories high on its garden facade, with views over the river. The usual array of materials associated with the Kecks is employed here: thin, brick-sheathed walls, wood, and glass. Another Keck and Keck house in the Davenport area is the similar Kirk Fowler dwelling of 1962. It is located at 2317 Washington Street, Bettendorf.
