This Frank Lloyd Wright house just re-opened this week after some renovations. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The staff was still having some trouble with the lighting as the electricals had been re-done. Overall a very nice visit. Our guide, Dan Hrenko was very knowledgeable about the house and its occupants. He was also very considerate of one member of our group who has some special needs. Overall a very nice tour.

This Frank Lloyd Wright house in Springfield, IL, is beautiful at the holidays. The house has recently been renovated and because of that renovation, the site has been closed for almost one year. I would suggest viewing the house during the one night it is open all year long. Check with the people at the house for this year's night tours. Go early and dress warm because you may have to stand outside in the long line that forms. I would suggest going to visit the house early on the one evening it is open. If you can't make the evening tours, any time is a good time to visit the house. It is not open on Christmas or on Monday and Tuesday.

This home started as a remodel job! In Wright fashion he saved only the study of the original structure. It is one of the best collections of original Wright furnishings. This large home was done early in his career, but a wonderful example of Wright's development of his Prairie Style architecture. Definitely a must see!
