Greetings From The Palmer House

Post by EJ »

My wife and I have spent the last two nights at the Palmer house. It is an incredible house that each and everyone of you should experience. The numerous pictures that have been published in the various books and magazines do not do justice to what a beautiful work of art this house is. I encourage you all to make your way to Ann Arbor as soon as time and fortune permit you. The craftsmanship on this house is unsurpassed by any Usonian and that I have been to .

Agreed. The finest of the 5 Wright overnights I've experienced. Certainly in the top tier of Wright's creations.

We visited a couple times, the first visit was with Mrs. Palmer. She was a real dear. Had a great lunch and she related stories about Wright's visit, and his critiquing the string quartet and spending the night.
A great time indeed.
