The William A. Glasner House, is a Frank Lloyd Wright designed Prairie School home that was constructed in Glencoe, Illinois, United States, in 1905. Glasner led his sister, Emma Pettit, to Wright to design the Pettit Memorial Chapel as a memorial to her deceased husband, Dr. William H. Pettit.

The house was threatened with demolition by a real estate developer, but the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy helped locate a conservation-minded buyer who ultimately purchased the house.[2] It is a 4,300 square feet, four-bedroom, three-bathroom house and sits on a one-acre lot. Jack Reed bought the house in 2003 for $1.5 million with plans to spend $2.5 million restoring it.[3]
