    The Parmelee House, formerly located at 512 Roslyn Road in Kenilworth, was one of Maher's most pivotal early commissions leading to his distinctive Prairie School architectural style. Maher had a long association with Kenilworth. His own home, built in Kenilworth in 1893, was one of about 40 houses he designed in the affluent suburban village. Prior to Kenilworth's incorporation in 1896, Maher's early houses looked to historical revival styles for inspiration. The Parmelee House, built between 1897-1898, shows Maher moving away from historicism to develop his own distinctive modernist style using simple, geometric forms. Additionally, Maher designed his own ornament based on geometry and naturalistic plant forms. The windows presently offered incorporate the high Tudor arch and sugar barley turning which Maher used as unifying devices throughout the house. The Parmelee commission represents Maher's earliest use of his signature Tudor arch in a modernist style. Period photographs suggest these were the only art glass windows executed for the house. In later commissions, Maher frequently employed multiple windows throughout his interiors in the same manner as his contemporary Frank Lloyd Wright. Although the Parmelee House was recently demolished despite significant preservation efforts to save this historical home, these windows survive as a lasting legacy to one of Maher's most important early commissions.
