This Frank Lloyd Wright house from 1909 is in fantastic shape. I loved all the stained glass. You watch a short film on the restoration then tour the house. The whole place is a picture spot. A must see!!!

Beautifully cared-for home in a residential section of Grand Rapids. Frank Lloyd Wright devotees should make the trip. Furniture and decor is functional and in great condition. Not a lot of parking available, but worth a little walk.

The house was closed when we visited, but walked the grounds and it is beautiful. Frank Lloyd Wright homes are all magnificent.
