This complex of buildings was one of Wright's special favorites, and you can see why. He had a free hand to build as he pleased, and he created a stunning Prairie Style complex. Some of it had been torn down in the dismal 50's but...More

Darwin Martin House National Historic Landmark - designed by Wright and completed in 1905. This complex of buildings must be one of the best reconditioned / conserved FLR projects in existance. Unbelieveable care and attention to detail has gone into this project... by a local...More

I needed to see the house while visiting the area. From the outside it was interesting. It was so much bigger than I imagined.

Frank L. Wright designed this home for one of the managers of the Larkin Company. You must visit the home to appreciate why the owners loved it !

There is ample on-street parking available near the Martin House. The Buffalo Zoo parking lot is 180 paces from the walkway to the Gratbatch Pavilion (visitor's center) where the tour begins. We look forward to your visit!
we visited the Gray Cliff House while it was being restored in April of 2014, and we were very disappointed as most rooms were either off limits or too much of a "work in progress" to be enjoyed . We will be in Buffalo oward the end of may 2016 and would like to visit the Martin house ; would you say that with the modified tour that is offered now we will feel that we are not being too restricted by the restoration in progress?
