Isaac and Florence Budovich House, Wilmington, DE
Delaware recently had
two historic sites added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Center
for Historic Architecture & Design authored both nominations as part of a
Certified Local Government grant for New Castle County for 2019.
The Isaac and Florence Budovitch
House in Wilmington (upper left) was listed on January 30, 2020, under Criterion C for its
mid-twentieth century Contemporary architecture. Designed by Edgar Tafel, who
studied under renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright as an original apprentice in Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship, the dwelling exhibits distinctive
Prairie School/Wrightian influence and characteristics of organic architecture
espoused by Wright. Built in 1955-56 by Ernest DiSabatino & Sons, it has
been virtually unaltered in the more than 60 years since its construction and
maintains exceedingly high levels of integrity.

represents the early history of European settlement in northern Delaware, and
religious practices in Delaware’s Brandywine Hundred over the course of nearly
three centuries. It also embodies architectural traditions in the region during
the mid-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries— especially stone construction
and late Gothic Revival design. The site was originally a Quaker burial site
(c. 1688). By 1704 there was a log Quaker meeting house on the site. The
current stone building was built in 1845 as a non-denominational church for
Methodists, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians. By 1888 the Methodists took sole
possession of the building, and in 1906 it was remodeled to its current
