This is considered to be the first prairie style house that Wright designed. It is well worth the trip. Only an hour south of Chicago. The staff and tour guides are excellent. We are lucky that this house is open to the public.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a fantastic designer -- this home in Kankakee is a phenomenal rendering of his design -- it's beautiful -- take a walk through it -- it sends you back in time

Frank Lloyd Wright was an interesting fellow, and what an interesting house! I would recommend the tour to anyone, but especially if you're into architecture.

Attended a reception here and the house is very cool! Recommend for smaller groups as there is not a lot of space and the rooms are broken up. The caterer, Bennett-Curtis was really good and set up the stations well that we didn’t feel crowded....More

Fantastic location (on the Kankakee River), perfectly set into the terrain, beautiful woodwork and art glass. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the house and history. Really appreciate the efforts of the Hall family with saving this treasure.
