Having an architecture education, I was looking forward to seeing another FLW creation. We visited after hours. But even if the building was open, I'm not sure that we could have wandered around inside. While I was enchanted, I was also discouraged by the number of changes made to the building over the years. It would have been much more... More

It's just a plain, old business building, that happens to be designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It has the distinctive FLW look, but it's nothing special.

It was surprising to find a building in the little town of Whitefish, Montana designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Being a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, I love searching out these little gems. The woman in the visitor center was able to provide additional interesting information. A side note, stop in the visitor center!!

What a joy to find such a work of art, still being well used. Such a classic, well designed building still being practical. I truly appreciate the owners and current occupants of the building tolerating fans without grumbling or charging entrance.

If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright' work, it is worth stopping in front of the building to appreciate one of the architect's work. It isn't one of the stunning homes he has designed, yet it deserves a look. You can see some distinctive features that show up in his other works, notably the layered roof. Quite the... More

This is a classic of American Architecture here in Whitefish, MT. I would not really call this an "attraction" for entertainment, it is more like a gem for appreciation. Especially to be here where not expected. It is a simple building by the icon of American Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, and has many of his classic elements: cornice details, brick... More

Unless you really appreciate and know the story behind the man, you won't be impressed. It is a fairly non-descript building really; we drove by it a few times while in town without realizing it was an attraction.

Unfortunately, the work of such a famous architect is lost in the middle of shops, bars, and tourist type environment. You have to appreciate the design, but the location certainly is lacking.

I read the reason why he built in Whitefish on the back of a postcard, odd. It is a Law office and states its the Frank Lloyd Wright building on the parking lot sign. Alone it would be neat, but around other buildings it kinda has no real draw for your eye, cool and obscure that it's in town I... More

As I walked in downtown Whitefish, just where the "sidewalk ends" and quiet business begins, I saw a building that caught my eye. There was something iconic, subtle, but distinctive in its design. Then I saw the sign near the street: "Frank Lloyd Wright Building." Aha! That was it. It had many of the hallmarks I'd come to look for... More
