In 2015, the Elizabeth Murphy House made national news as a rare newly-rediscovered house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
In 2021 she is the protagonist in the book “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Forgotten House.” Get your copy at fine local booksellers everywhere.
This is a rare opportunity to experience an historic and well-preserved Wright-designed home that has been a private residence for 104 years running. The home is where Wright was compelled to rethink his approach to affordable housing and is the site of the split between Wright and his talented young assistant Russell Barr Williamson.
The Elizabeth Murphy House is a private residence in a quiet neighborhood. Feel free to snap and post a selfie (@elizabethmurphyhouse or #franklloydwrightsforgottenhouse ) from the front walk, but tours are by invitation only.
