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

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
