This house is a most see in Florence Alabama. The design and the story behind the Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum house is an art piece in itself . It is a quick tour and located in one the older sections of Florence’s neighborhoods.

Cool lil' GUIDED tour of one of American architecture's most-storied and eccentric historians...

This house is not wheelchair friendly due to narrow doorways and steps. The house follows the lay of the land, so steps are only 2 or 3 at a time.
