A friend and I visited this spur of the moment. The house itself is captivating. The curator that we had was very knowledgeable, witty & friendly. This tour inspires me to seek out other Frank Lloyd Wright home tours!

This Frank Lloyd Wright house from 1909 is in fantastic shape. I loved all the stained glass. You watch a short film on the restoration then tour the house. The whole place is a picture spot. A must see!!!
