I’ve toured many Frank Lloyd Wright homes around the country. This one is different. It was designed for a client of modest means. It is only 1,700 sq. ft. That said, it is no Everyman house! It was designed by FLW late in his career....More

Very experienced tour guide, walked the grounds, full tour of house, plus video and gift shop in tool house. Learned a great deal about the plan for this house and its design using parallelograms.

This was my first tour of a FLW home and I can’t wait to see another! Everything in the home is original and in excellent condition. The detail he included that brought the outside design into the interior is certainly not what you see anymore,...More

One of the best Wright homes I've visited. Knowledgeable docent gave extensive tour, highlighting the unique aspects of this Usonian. The way Wright situated the home on the property is a living example of parts of his philosophy. The story of how the house came...More

I've seen pictures and read books and a view videos about the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright but to actually be in one of his creation is mind expanding. The layout and furniture design is unsurpassed. Modern builders should be required to visit this beautiful...More

We have toured about 10 flw houses and we loved this one. It’s one of the smallest but awesome. You must book tour in advance.

I booked about a month is advance, which appeared to be a good idea, as my tour was nearly full (11 out of 12) people. The docent was very friendly, and knowledgeable, and clearly loves her job (the docents are volunteers). The story behind the...More

Great house built in Frank Lloyd Wrights later years. I recommend you book a reservation as times book up fast. only 12 people can tour the house at a time as it is small, but uniquely FLW.
