Really enjoyed our approximately hour and a half tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park, also known as the Kraus House. The guide was so knowledgeable ; lots of little interesting details about this house from the latter period of Wright's career. Beautiful grounds. Perhaps not as imposing as some of the other Wright homes open to... More

Love Frank Lloyd Wright, so loved hearing about the history of the home, the homeowners that built this retreat, and the architecture and TLC of this treasure. Also, enjoyed the interesting shaped-bed, and how the house has been restored to its natural beauty. Joan, the document, does a lovely job of recreating history in her verbal presentation and tour.

The house sits on a hill surrounded by Aspen trees. The design of the house is based on a trapezoid and as such is quite intriguing. The original furniture and finishings are in great shape and the view from the living room is magical. This is well worth a visit at any time of year.

This a great house to see. It even has the original Wright furniture still. I highly recommend it for any Wright or architecture lover.

I visited Frank Lloyd Wright's home in Wisconsin, Taliesen, many years ago. I liked it, but the tour was a bit young for my younger attention span. I liked what I saw but left a bit under-impressed. As our son and daughter have shown much love of drawing, buildings and more, and after learning about the Krause House from MissouriLife... More

It has been a few years since I visited this house. I really did enjoy the tour and took my parents and some of my children with me. It has a nice location and I enjoyed hearing about the history of house. The owners had a difficult time getting all of the materials and getting the place built. It is... More

Before this trip to St. Louis to see the Arch and the Frank Lloyd Wright house I knew very little about the FLW style of architecture. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the house which was given by a very knowledgeable guide. This house is special because the original owners never sold it and any changes they... More

I love the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright (even if I don't care for the guy too much). Finding buildings of his to visit is always a treat for me. This house was designed by Wright as a Usonian home and built by a local contractor to Wright's specifications. Its beautifully maintained. It was lived in by one family that... More

If you are even a little bit interested in the work of the famous architect Frank L. Wright you need to visit the Kraus house. Our guide Larry did a wonderful job in his discussion on FL Wright and the details of the home. This man is a wealth of knowledge and has a fine way of sharing it. The... More

This house is open for tours by appointment only. Our group was there on a beautiful day! It is impossible to see the house from the street. The house is nestled in a park-like tree-filled area. The interior is very interesting with many of Frank Lloyd Wright's furniture filling up the space. The beds are very unusual. Lots of horizontal... More
