Being fans of Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes, we were delighted to experience an informative tour from the Site Manager. The Rosenbaum home, an early example of Wright's Usonian design, was similar to others we have visited but also unique in other ways such as the garden area and fountain. We were pleased that so much of the family's original... More

This is a very good thing to do. My wife & I decided to visit the Wright/Rosenbaum house in Florence in prep for our upcoming visit to the Wright/Bachman-Wilson house at the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas. (We are life-long residents of the Florence area but had never visited the Rosenbaum home.) This was a very good tour with... More

The tour was filled with interesting facts about the house, wright's philosophy of design, the Rosenbaum family, and great examples of wright's furniture designs which was mostly built in and made by a revolutionary new material called plywood. Yeah plywood. Definately worth taking the tour. It is one of just a few homes that wright designed an addition to to... More

Went out of our way to see this home and was not disappointed. The tour guide was informative, the price for admission was reasonable and the entire area was pleasant.

This house and the tour was great! Bob the tour guide was VERY knowledgeable about the house and the history! He had actually lived in the house for a period of time! Well worth the time and we were happy to pay the 8$ per Ticket to tour the house!

We have seen a few F. L. Wright houses and drove hundreds of miles to see this one. Very different, tight hallways and skinny doors for this house that held a family of 6. Our informative guide gave us history on the house, the addition and the family. Absolutely worth the trip if you're near by.

Well worth stopping and taking the tour, especially if you like mid century Architecture. It does not take long to tour and it is close to downtown.

My girlfriend and I have never been inside a home he has designed and also we have lived in Alabama most of our lives without us knowing of this place. This is a very rare gem for Alabama. If you love unique homes and are a fan of architecture then this is worth a tour. You will be amazed at... More
