This is a must see for Frank Lloyd Wright fans. The house is stellar and tour guides so passionate. The house is under some repair but adds to intrigue gift shop is good and nor over priced

Did the three hour architect's tour and spent the next four hours listening to and learning from Patrick. Stories and insights brought the home and it's inhabitants to life. Doing a beautiful restoration- looking foward to returning when it is completed.
