Bruce Price


(b. Cumberland, Maryland 1845; d. 1902)

Born in Cumberland, Maryland in 1845, Bruce Price practiced briefly in Baltimore and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, before moving to New York in 1877.

Early in his career, Price worked on a series of domestic projects which culminated in the design and layout of Tuxedo Park, a vacation community in New York. The Shingle style houses Price built at Tuxedo, with their compact massing and axial plans, influenced several young architects including Frank Lloyd Wright.

For his later works, Price generally used an eclectic blend of styles. Notable works include his Romanesque Revival Windsor Station, Montreal and his twenty-story office block in New York for the American Surety Company.

Price died in 1902.
