Great house built in Frank Lloyd Wrights later years. I recommend you book a reservation as times book up fast. only 12 people can tour the house at a time as it is small, but uniquely FLW.

We have visited several FLW houses. This was the smallest. Size didn't matter because the design was awesome. Only two flaws with this house. Two of the openings, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom that you had to turn sideways to get...More
