This house is amazing! One of the best FLW tours we’ve been on. Beautifully restored and the guides were very good. I only wish there had been more souvenirs to purchase, because we would’ve spent a lot more money there.

Frank Lloyd Wright built this house in 1908-09. It had gone through some rough times, but the restoration is wonderful. Certainly see the introductory movie! The house is only open a few hours a few days a week so plan accordingly. Free admission.

Accessible FLW done with lots of money behind it. These houses are not easy to keep up, and the level of structural restoration and interior refurbish is impressive - as well as being true to the original intention. Knowledgeable tour guide, and my goodness, it's...More
