This was a great tour and another beautiful FLW home. Sue, our dossier, was incredibly well-educated and a perfect guide. Even if you're not a fan of this style, it's worth a visit.

I may be slightly biased seeing that I'm a HUGE fan of FLW. That being said, the restoration organization that saved Westcott House did an AMAZING job! Every time I step into a FLW home it's like going to church! Do NOT hesitate seeing this...More

We viewed the house from the outside but were not interested in a tour of the interior. However, there is a very interesting 19th century cemetery across the street from the house in which we spent quite a bit of time.

Springfield has a treasure in this restored Frank Lloyd Wright house. Definitely worth a visit for some eye candy and local history. The grounds/gardens are also lovely. And it has an amazing gift shop, too!

We LOVE Frank Lloyd Wright's work, have visited and enjoyed 7 or more of his homes. A favorite is the Darwin Martin home in Buffalo, NY. Perhaps that contributes to our disappointment? Westcott was bought in 2001 for $300,000. What? Declining neighborhood, house broken up...More
