A must see when in Springfield. Guided tours and so much to see. The Christmas season is a great time to take in all the decorations and Mr. Wrights wonderful sense of structure. Tour prices are very reasonable. Usuallly a donation of around $10.

Wonderful example of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius. Fantastic remodeling by FLW of one of the older homes in Springfield.

The site is open year round Weds.-Sun. and seasonally Mon. & Tues. The website doesn't say when the seasonal ends. The best thing to do is call 1 217 782-6776. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
