This home is definitely worth touring. Very unique inside and out as well as the furnishings. Not sure I could live it this type of home but it's very liveable. The home blends so well in it's surrounding area of trees and yard. It's amazing how well it has been taken care of all these years! Well worth seeing.....so Frank... More

I attended this tour prior to my book club which was reading "Loving Frank" (very interesting book, BTW, mostly about his mistress). I always thought of Frank Lloyd Wright houses as very large, even if a little minimalist. This house is quite modest in terms of size but has some very interesting components of Wright's style.

We drove out from downtown and were disappointed to find that we couldn't get in because we hadn't known we needed to arrange a tour beforehand. So disappointing...

Our family of four, including two teens who did now know anything about FLW, had a nice time at Ebsworth. The staff went out of their way to make sure we got to take a tour, since we showed up on a day when they were closed. CALL AND MAKE RESERVATIONS! You cannot just show up. The tours are small...

Interesting Usonian house. Many original furniture pieces and features. Nicely maintained. Small - but that was Usonian.

I have always wanted to visit a FLW house and this was my first. It was in every sense a very intimate visit - just 11 of us and the docent. The visit lasted about an hour and half including the 17 minute introductory video. The whole visit was unhurried and we had ample opportunity to view the house and... More

A must see if you have never seen one of his homes. It kinda blows your mind when you think the homeowners were told what furniture they should have and how to build it right down to the last nail. I had always wanted to tour one and I was glad we were able to go. You will need reservations... More

This amazing Frank Lloyd Wright is available to tour by appointment only so plan ahead as you don't want to miss it. The house has been carefully restored and is an impeccable representation of FLW's work. Beautifully sighted and masterfully built this architectural triumph pulls you back to anther time. The vision of a small utilitarian home anchored to the... More

and only Wednesday - Sunday. We came through St. Louis on a Monday, drove out to this Frank Lloyd House, and were so disappointed that we could not even see the exterior. The long drive up was gated.

This is a small but lovingly maintained home with all the original furnishings, including Wright designed furniture. One of the more interesting parts of the tour is learning what it was like for a home builder to stick to the design, materials specified in every detail, taking over ten years to come close to finishing the home! Well worth a... More
