Much effort is going into restoration and preservation of this district. The homes are unique and their landscaping is gorgeous! Pick up a map (we got one at the Meyer-May house) so you don't have to try to squint at a tiny one downloaded to...More

The architecture is varied and beautiful. Lots of single family homes. Frank Lloyd Wright home to tour and others to see. Great walking tours!

This area is lovely. Drive down the streets. Walk the sidewalks. Best yet, find out when the home tour is and buy tickets... Lovely, lovely, lovely homes!! We are still drooling!!!

The houses are amazing. You can walk or drive, but walking is better to take your time and see them all up close. If you get tired you can drive to do the rest. We really enjoyed it!

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, or if you use like lovely neighborhoods and historic houses, this is a must. Meyer May House is gorgeous, classic FLW prairie house genre, beautifully restored. Should be on your FLW Life List.
