Only open for tour one day per year, so advance planning a must. Faithfully restored over 25+ years. Frank Lloyd Wright did a masterful job of making this estate unique in every detail. Access through Charleston Historical Foundation. Contribution required, but well worth it.

If you’re a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, you take the opportunity to see as many of his designs as you can. Auldbrass is one of them and it is truly one-of-a-kind. The only farm he ever designed and we drove down from Rochester, NY to...More

What an incredible property! What Mr. Silver has done to restore this architectural gem is phenomenal. So glad he and his family opens it to the public on occasion, so others can admire this home. Tickets are pricey, but go to a great cause. Highly...More
