Originally visited the Meyer May House when I was a student at GRCC. Enjoyed it so much that I went back with my husband. Docent's were great and shared the history of both Meyer May and FLW.

Needed something to do while the wife was attending her conference so I found this tour and was very glad I went. The tour was very informative. The docents were very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Well worth the time.
