“Pretty House Ugly Customer Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

When we first walked in there were employees but noone greated us. we stood around and then when one did help us, they did not volunteer any more information than was necessary regarding the tour. Parking was average, there is not a parking lot, only on street parking. The house is gorgeous! the guide was rude and when we asked questions she acted like we were stupid for asking them but then we caught on everytime she was upset it was because she didn't know the history. You cannot touch anything in the house and you cannot take pictures inside. The house was not disappointing but everthing else was.

“A Springfield classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

An amazing piece of Wright architecture that was fortunately saved from ruin in the mid-1900s by the Charles Thomas Publishing Company.

“Beautiful house!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

Well worth the trip! So beautiful! Loved all the stained glass! So many amazing details and Frank Lloyd Wright designed it all--the glass, light fixtures, furniture, and the house. Even better than I imagined it might be!
