Nothing like a great house by a great architect! This is the fourth Frank Lloyd House we have toured and each is so different from the next even though they are all family. Nooks and crannies, stained glass, and gorgeous woodwork!

Lived here for over 2 decades, but never had I visited this little gem in the suburbs. Turned out to be an interesting way to spend a weekend afternoon.

This small Usonian is definitely worth a visit for any Frank Lloyd Wright fan. Yes, it is quite small, but that makes it very interesting to see what FLW did with such limited space. As with any FLW design, there are uniquenesses around every corner here. The home has only been open for tours for a few years and is... More

Small tours with well informed docents. You get to see all of the house and ask questions. The house has all original furnishings which is very unusual. CALL for an appointment.

A short drive from downtown St. Louis this is a must see attraction for art and architecture lovers. BUT make sure you call ahead and schedule a private tour because the house is not open for the public at set times. Visits are by appointment only and cost $10 per person.

Our experience at the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Epsworth Park was very special and we were full of wonder at the design of this Usonian home. To enter the home is to become involved in the space exactly as Wright intended..one becomes a participant instead of just a resident or visitor. I have a fairly strong background (and a... More

This is really a unique place to visit. To think that little Kirkwood has this special Frank Lloyd Wright home is amazing. You must make a reservation and then prepare to step back in time.

I called to make a reservation and was told that our 11 month old wasn't allowed to go in the house with us. I completely understand that toddlers and young children are difficult to corral and parents should be responsible and choose a more child friendly museum, however I don't quite understand how a baby that doesn't walk and would...

American readers might not know that a partner of Frank Lloyd Wright who worked with him, including his wife who did many of FLW's interiors, was Walter Burley Griffin. WBG won the Australian Governments competition in 1927 to design the new Aussie capital, Canberra. The Kraus house in St.Louis was restored a few years ago for about 2 million US$... More

For FLW lovers, this place is simply amazing. The back story is a great one, and the condition of the house is exceptional for a Wright house. It's remarkable how "original" the home is....yes there has been some reconstruction of brickwork, but that's to be expected with a Wright design. The house is not one of the "grand " houses...
