This house was designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright in the middle of the 20th century. It is a fascinating house to visit. I cannot believe someone actually lived here for many years. The house was custom built for the owners.

This is a house that is closed up and will let only small group go thru. When house is not open it is seal up. Beware if you have allergies they will not like this place.

This is a classic Frank Lloyd Wright house. It is small, but the docent was excellent. She provided numerous facts and details. The tour included information from the previous owner of the house who worked with FLW to design the house. The docent also had first hand information from the builder of the house. Well worth the $10 fee for... More

For me & my Frank Lloyd Wright admiring companion, this was a well-spent $10 p.p. donation for 75 minutes of superior, docent-guided tour including a 17 minute informative Ebsworth Park (Russ Kraus) house tour. Mary, our docent took 8 of us to see nearly "every last inch" of the house's fascinating interior. Parking is free and plentiful. A clean little... More

Wright created a masterpiece creation nestled in a fantastic wooded area of Kirkwood! It is fascinating to see how he planned every aspect of life inThe the building - form, fit, *and* function! The shock comes when one tours the property and thinks of questions like, .. "where would we put a television'? "Why is there no storage?" - We... More

It's not Falling water...it's not even the Dana Thomas House or Robie House, but it's St. Louis's only FLW house that's open for public tours and any FLW fan will enjoy it. The house is in great condition. The foundation has really worked hard to restore it. Our guide was very knowledgable. The tour took about an hour. There were... More

Tour was fantastic, house and story are interesting! Docent was very knowledgeable. Listen to them when they limit attendance of children, a little long for attention span of typical child.

I've taken guided-tours of all the Wright-designed homes in Oak Park (Chicago, IL) as well as some of his commercial buildings. The home in Ebsworth Park is an excellent example of his work at the apex of his career. If you already have an appreciation for his designs, you won't be disappointed by taking this tour! If you've never experiences... More

This is an example of Wright's Utopian home. We have visited other Wright homes, but this is the one I found most interesting and it was right in my backyard! There are few square corners in this house!
