I was amazed by the beauty and innovation of Wright's design. Our guide Dave was outstanding! Thanks for sharing so many intersting facts about the complex, the families who lived here and architect Frank Lloyd Wright. A definite must see when visiting Buffalo, NY.

Back in the day, Mr. Martin did not give Wright a budget limit. This house is fairly large and you are provided with a comprehensive tour. Beautiful woodwork and interesting kitchen layout.

An absolute must see when in Buffalo...not to be missed. Even though the landscaping was undergoing a major renovation, it didn't deter from an amazing tour of this Wright masterpiece. Pure genius; so far ahead of his time. A great tour allowing for access throughout...More
