Frederick Wallick

The home designed by Frederick Wallick for Charles Mayer, Jr. was constructed in 1924-1925. The Indiana Construction Recorder announced its value at $35,000, but the building permit issued 27 September 1924 listed the value as $38,000. The large brick home with Italian Renaissance details is typical of Wallick’s fine residential design. Wallick designed the Thomas Taggart home (NR) in 1914, thus establishing himself as a favorite of the wealthy class in Indianapolis. Among the many homes he designed in the city are “Westerly,” the Dr. George H.A. Clowes home (Golden Hill HD); “Lanesend,” designed for Eli Lilly and Company president Eli Lilly; and “Seawood,” the summer home of Booth Tarkington. Eli Lilly’s brother J. K chose Wallick to make extensive alterations to his home “Oldfields” (NHL) in 1933. Wallick designed many homes in the North Meridian Street Historic District and was almost the exclusive designer in Crows Nest Historic District. He also designed the clubhouse for the prestigious Woodstock Club (NR) in Indianapolis. Wallick practiced extensively in Winter Park, Florida, where he designed commercial, ecclesiastical, and residential buildings.
