We've made many, many trips to Buffalo for shopping and dining and thought we'd check out something different. When the #1 attraction on Tripadvisor mentioned the Darwin Martin House we knew we were on to something. Slightly embarrassed that we have lived in the area all our lives and didn't realize this Frank Lloyd Wright designed complex was in our own back yard, we knew we had to rectify that. Parking is available at the Buffalo Zoo (another great attraction) and tokens to cover the parking fee can be picked up when purchasing your tour tickets or in the gift shop.
The background information housed in the Greatbatch Pavillion set the tone for what was a really interesting tour. The docents are knowledgeable and extremely passionate about their subject. The tour was wonderful and the home and history were fascinating. As the restoration of the complex continues we have every intention of returning to check on the progress. If you're a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, this is a stop for you. And even if you aren't, it's still pretty interesting and the neighbourhood surrounding the complex has some beautiful homes to check out as well.
