Originally visited the Meyer May House when I was a student at GRCC. Enjoyed it so much that I went back with my husband. Docent's were great and shared the history of both Meyer May and FLW.

Needed something to do while the wife was attending her conference so I found this tour and was very glad I went. The tour was very informative. The docents were very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Well worth the time.

We are into Frank Lloyd Wright houses and this is a beautiful one. It is on the smaller side compared to the other Wright houses. Well worth seeing. The furniture was spectacular to see how it fit into the house. Typical Wright. Well worth seeing...More
