Got a tour of the home during Doors Open Milwaukee and felt like a tourist in my own back yard. He did pre-fabricated homes so he could bring his designs to regular families(not just the wealthy who could afford him).

Always lived in the area and drove by these home but made a special stop during Doors Open Milwaukee. Daughter was not familiar with Wright so it was a nice opportunity to show her some major history and amazing design. Loved this visit.

Milwaukee is home to the only city block made up entirely of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes. The six buildings are all multi-family homes. A local non-profit has managed to secure four (I think) of the buildings and is restoring them to their original splendor, as...More

Seems like it is rarely open to public. Two house are beautifully renovated and two sadly dilapidated. Could not go inside. Google maps sends you to the wrong address. It was around the corner from the location.

These 6 houses are the only full block of FLW houses anywhere. The docents were very knowledgeable and let us spend plenty of time in both the duplex (which has been restored on the outside, but not yet on the inside) and the model B1...More
