Price House

Carolyn Price sold "Hillside" a year or so ago after over 50 years of meticulous care of her prized home. She has an amazing story to tell of negotiations with Wright, thus the spacious kitchen and larger-than-typical bedrooms. This was, I recall, the third design. I've had the privilege of being in...

Thanks for posting these great photos.

I've been to - and mostly in - all of the Wright buildings you feature except the Kraus house in St Lous.

I live near Bartlesville and have a history with the Prices.

Did you enjoy your stay at the Price Tower?

Mason City

I suggest you go to the Mason City webpage or google Mason City Chamber of Commerce where they may have information or a number you could call for information. The curators of the STockman house might also have information for you if you have a brochure or visit their website for a number.

The Price House in Bartlesville Oklahoma, which is of magnificent proportion, has a recessed living area. When you step into the long, capacious foyer onto a Wright designed carpet, the entrance to the living area is at first obscured. Once you step around the brick wall to your left, you descend 6 ...

Caught or taught?
