Much effort is going into restoration and preservation of this district. The homes are unique and their landscaping is gorgeous! Pick up a map (we got one at the Meyer-May house) so you don't have to try to squint at a tiny one downloaded to...More

The architecture is varied and beautiful. Lots of single family homes. Frank Lloyd Wright home to tour and others to see. Great walking tours!

This is a very interesting neighborhood/tour of old houses in the historic district. We went on Memorial Day and nothing was open, but you can get tours of some of the houses. I think that includes one of the Frank Lloyd Wright houses. We downloaded...More

The houses are amazing. You can walk or drive, but walking is better to take your time and see them all up close. If you get tired you can drive to do the rest. We really enjoyed it!

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, or if you use like lovely neighborhoods and historic houses, this is a must. Meyer May House is gorgeous, classic FLW prairie house genre, beautifully restored. Should be on your FLW Life List.
