The Post World War II Suzanne and Robert Drucker House is locally significant and meets Criterion C for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by Harry Weese for his sister Suzanne, the Drucker House is architecturally significant as an excellent example of a Mid-century Modem house. The house is simple, functional and carefully-detailed, with a design based on geometric relationships not historical precedents. It is distinctly Modem, while incorporating Weese's personal brand of Modernism--a synthesis of International Style, Scandinavian and Midwestern influences. When expanded in 1963, Harry's brother Ben Weese designed an addition compatible in style, scale, materials and detailing with the original design of the house.
