This is one of the smaller FLW properties we have visited but has a very interesting story as a private home. Well explained by a highly knowledgeable guide. Worthwhile visit.

We really enjoyed the tour and the visit was one of the highlights of our trip. The guide was knowledgeable, provided the background history and placed everything in context. Prior to this tour we weren't aware of this budget-conscious aspect of the architect designs.

Our tour members included relatives of the Rosenbaums which gave the experience an interesting twist. As a lover of books I was intrigued by the amazing volumes that lined what seemed like miles of bookshelves. I could picture myself dining with friends at the table...More

I learned a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright on this tour. His ego was staggering. I don't want to spoil the tour, but did you know that he specified what furniture and fabric would go in "his" homes? He had his own ideas about how...More
