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.

What We Can Learn About Historic Preservation from Frank Lloyd Wright
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.
