My husband found out about this right in Kirkwood where we live! You have to call and set up a time for a tour. The house and the tour were really great, the number of people was small so it felt intimate and the house was really cool. We've also checked out Frank Lloyd Houses in Chicago so we already...

I went here with my book club after reading about FLW. The guide was knowledgeable and thorough. The house itself is very interesting with a beautiful view.

This house was saved with a great effort and support by many, many people. A real treat. All of the furniture is FLW.

I believe they still only have private tours for ~10 people and the home is very small but if you appreciate FLW or architecture it is well worth the money. The homeowners preserved the house as a shrine to FLW, most of the original FLW designed furniture is still there. The private docent led tours are informative about both the... More

We had an excellent volunteer docent who told us about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright and this house. It was interesting touring the house, and seeing what was important to the architect and to the owner of the house. The biggest difficulty was obtaining an appointment for this tour.

This FLW home was put back to its original glory for all to see and enjoy. You can see the furniture. artwork and woodwork up close and really get a feel for his creations. This one of two FLW homes in St. Louis however it is the only one open to to public.

We have been visiting FLW homes in cities where we travel, and this tour was one of the more informative tours. Liz was our guide and she gave an excellent tour, which lasted about an hour. This home has most of the furnishings that were in the home when the homeowners lived there. The $10 admission fee was a bargain.... More

This is a great example of F.L. Wright's homes for everyman. Our tour guide was full of information that helped make our tour so much more interesting. Worth the 5.00 it cost when we went through. Think you have to call in advance for a reservation.

I've been to around 5-6 Wright estates across the country and while this is one of his smaller homes, it's still a pretty interesting surprise. No matter how much similarity you find in his homes, this one still has something unique and special about it, particularly the way it's situated in Ebsworth Park.

This was incredible seeing a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in this area! This is a middle to upper middle class house that looks like the owners just stepped out. So many unique features - very interesting. Only disadvantage is that there are no routine open hours. You must make an appointment to see this.
