Stop at the visitors center. Lots of info. Then tour the home. This is classic Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie Style architecture. Very interesting. Probably not so fun for children.

This is a wonderful example of a Frank Lloyd Wright house designed for a somewhat middle class family at the time. Very usable space and a somewhat open floor plan which can be unusual for his designs. It is a lovely home and if a...More
