“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The tour guide was a church member and liked the church. The new addition we toured through also was interesting to see and hear about the uses etc.

“Another Frank Lloyd Wright gem; his home church”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were fortunate to get a personal tour after the 9 a.m. Sunday service. It should be noted that most services are held in a new "Wright inspired" addition, which is unique and notable itself. Wright's original auditorium seats only 200; while the new auditorium can handle 500. Our tour lasted about an hour and was quite educational and memorable.

“A Frank-Lloyd Wright masterpiece”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Stunning architecture with its blend of stone, wood, copper and glass. A new addition was put on two years ago to accommodate what is now the largest gathering of Unitarians in the country. Wonderful and unique choral music and musicians. Services are exilerating and thought-provoking.

“A Wright Classic”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

One of the most influential church designs of the 20th century. It has a new addition that is beautifully sited and doesn't impact the original mid-20th century building.

“Worth a trip”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Easy to find but be sure to go when there is a tour...there are only 2/day. Otherwise, you can only go into the sanctuary. Very friendly volunteer at desk.
