Very interesting house showing off the skills of one the greatest architects ever. They offered a 45 minute tour that covered almost everything you want to know. Well preserved.

If you are in the Florence, AL area the Rosenbaum House is a must see. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in the SE that is open to the public. The Rosenbaum House was completely restored at a cost of over $600K.

This house is not wheelchair friendly due to narrow doorways and steps. The house follows the lay of the land, so steps are only 2 or 3 at a time.
