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.” Local booksellers are taking pre-orders now. Visit yours to reserve a copy.
The home 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.
It can seem strange to think of a Frank Lloyd Wright dwelling as a standard product – something that could be built with interchangeable parts and pieces – but American System-Built Homes were exactly that. One of those pieces was Byrkit Lath.
