Hard to imagine Wright's "talent" during the times indeed... $10 per individual and you unknowingly park and enter first to sign-in at the school across the road just FYI...Plus there's NO INTERIOR...More

This house is not wheelchair friendly due to narrow doorways and steps. The house follows the lay of the land, so steps are only 2 or 3 at a time.
