“Interesting History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Excellent docent tour of this unusual house. Wright was an interesting character. Anxious to tour other houses that he designed.

“Usonian Masterpiece revisit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I am a Frank Lloyd Wright buff and have been to this house several times---but just can't get enough. Mary Dale was the docent on this tour and frankly I learned things I had not known previously. The house is very small but placed well on a beautifully landscaped 10+ acres in suburban St. Louis. If you are in the area and are even remotely interested in Frank Lloyd Wright or architecture, this house is a must.

“Original Furniture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Have visited many Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Midwest this is one of the few that actually had the original furniture and textiles in it. The folks that gave the tour seemed to know Mr. Wright so they were able to add to the experience.

“Great architecture in a small house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This house isn't very big, but you get to see all of it up close. Typical Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, and the house is mainly designed around 2 big parallolgrames. And many more included in the design. Tour has to be arranged in advance, but it is a nice tour lasting about 1 hour and 15 minutes which includes a short film about the building of the home.
Lots of interesting furniture inside too! Photographs are allowed outside, but not inside the house.

“A casual FLW home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

A bit smaller and more compact than most of Wright's houses, this features his usual wonderful warm woods. Situated on the brow of the hill, it offers a carport, an attached office, and typical little closet space. It's owned by the St Louis County Parks Department and so is not open every day - call for tour times.
