my guess would be that the correct location was asked not to be disclosed, so I would have to select either of the Barrington Hills houses, due to the proximity to "Palatine". Also, Barrington and Barrington Hills are very up scale communities.

most unusual photos of frank lloyd wright

Jeff : thanks for the link - many photos I had never seen before, esp. several of the david wright house. My all time favorite, if not unusual, is a photo of FLW at Taliesin - probably Hillside, slightly bent over working on a drawing, somewhat in profile. On the bench next to him, is I believe, Bra...

NY & Ohio FLW Trip photos

Tnguy : many, many thanks for the photographs. I lived near Buffalo in the early 1980's. Martin house was in rough condition then and it is truly a miracle to see it reborn. We also 'toured' the Davidson and Heath houses, both of which had been well maintained. I stayed in the Penfield house about 2...

Seth Petersen Cottage Tour

Thankfully my sound control would not allow me to hear above a whisper. The Seth Petersen Cottage is operated by a NFP and owned by the State of Wisconsin Dept of Natural Resources. We stayed there in 1997 and it was exceptional. I beleive it was Wes Peters who said that the SPC had more architectur...

David Wright House

Great reading the replies and interest in this house. DRN : I did not observe any water damage, but then I was not specifically looking for it. So if it exists, it is not obvious. Wrightgeek: The built in seating in the livingroom, all rounded, of course, still had the original cushions and fabric. ...

That Sunday I was giving tours at T-W and was told of a quickly assembled tour that afternoon, to be given by the real estate agent. I had no time to return home for my camera. Here is an overview: The house has bee...

Allsop Leaving the Foundation

I was at T-W this morning and saw the press release. Since Dick Carney passed away in 1998, there have been at least six "President/CEO's". It is possible there could have been more, I'd have to dig through my own archives to give an exact head count. Six in eleven years.

I have been a viewer of this site for many years, way back when students would message in, begging for assistance with term papers about FLW, due the next day. I have read many interesting things and learned much,even some of the in-fighting and "feuds" have been a learning experience. With my inter...
