If you are in to learning more about Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes then don't miss a guided tour of this home in suburban St. Louis. After a complete renovation, it looks like new. The setting is absolutely beautiful and the tour guides are quite knowledgeable about the home's history and occupants. A great learning experience!

The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park Not inspiring, this is a small, dark, uncomfortable structure with low ceilings, dark wood interiors, cramped interiors, inefficient kitchen and baths with furnace and hot water heater buried under the kitchen sink. Wright’s idea was to design the “usonian” house for people of modest means to allow them to experience and appreciate... More

I've seen other Wright houses and love this one -- from the built-in furniture to the magnificent view from the living room windows to the funky and difficult bedrooms. A real gem, lovingly restored. A do not miss!

Love the evening, love the house, the docents who work there. It was a wonderful evening viewing the home in a small group setting (10 people). The docents were knowledgeable and you could feel they had a love of the house too. We arrived and they had appetizers and drinks for us. We talked about Frank Lloyd Wright and where... More

First seen in Missouri Life magazine (MissouriLife.com), we scheduled a visit for our daughter's Junior Scout (4th & 5th graders) to visit. Growing up we visited Frank Lloyd Wright's Taleisin, in Wisconsin. I found it interesting but was truly ready to depart well before that tour ended. Quite the opposite here. The tour guide was informational and interesting. The history... More

We had a guide that made reservations several weeks in advance. The cost is $10.00 per person and you must be on time.The tour took well over an hour and was perhaps too long.The docent only allows 10 people. I saw 8 people turned away,seems to me that that is lost money as they were willing to wait but I... More

Excellent tour. I was so excited when this home was opened to the public. I've been to Taliesen and Taliesen West, plus about 6 other Wright creations. This was lovely and has the original furniture. My biggest treat was meeting the owner of the Kraus home on an architectural tour of St Louis. He talked about meeting FLW on so... More

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.
