While not the original location for this FLW house, it does work with the land as he would have wanted. The docent here was well informed and interesting (I am finding this to be the case with all FLW houses). This is one of the houses he designed for the ordinary working man. One recently sold for over 2 million! The Woodlawn Plantation was a novelty as it was decorated by students incorporating modern decor with the some of the original furnishings. The result was a home anyone would enjoy living in! This exhibit is only for a few months and the mansion will then once again be turned into the mansion it was. A delightful surprise to what I thought would be just another tour of an old house.
