    Frank Lloyd Wright's designed and built "Home and Studio" in 1889 when he was 22. He raised 6 children there before moving away in 1909. The home was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

    The public thought the home was built as a cottage for Frank Lloyd Wright's mother; however, it was actually a hideaway for him and his lover. Watch the video to hear more about this home. Read more

    This home & studio museum will entertain even those with no interest in architecture. Tip - order tickets online because sometimes the wait can get lengthy. Also, definitely take the guided tour.
