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.
Though Wright designed over a hundred modest American System-Built Homes he quickly cancelled the program with only twenty or so built and filed away the drawings forever when he realized that his art would not be preserved if its occupants didn’t themselves participate in the preservation.
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.
