Learn about this pioneer in the Prairie School of architecture in an intimate view of this family home. If you have time take a walking tour and see how his genius evolved. There are many of his homes and the Unity Temple nearby.

Spent several hours here. Took the home and studio tour and walking neighborhood tour. Highly recommended!! Educational, cultural, and historical all at the same time. The group of girls loved it. Ingenious man! Would go back.

Yes, we visited on a Saturday morning of a holiday weekend and no issues. As the day got later was much harder to find parking. Visit in the morning is my suggestion!
