Wright took special care in specifying the gutters on American System-Built Homes as: "...galvanized iron gutters and down spouts wherever and as indicated on drawings." We're doing as he directed.
Neighbors, friends and the historically curious are invited to attend a presentation - chock full of photographs, tales of stewardship and mysterious backstories - about the historic Elizabeth Murphy House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
Stewardship is not a product of special oversight placed on historic homes. It comes, instead, from a shared commitment to storytelling, passed between generations.
Learn more about The Elizabeth Murphy House and its place in Frank Lloyd Wright's work and legacy, by attending a presentation on Friday, 6/14/2019 at 12:30pm at the Hefter Center at UWM.

By creating a deliberately small space through which one must pass before reaching a larger space, Frank Lloyd Wright caused a temporary sense of tension, followed by a powerful feeling of freedom.

Since the house originally had no drive, garage or carport, a garage was added in 1976. It was both practical and necessary to the preservation of the house.
