Time Out says

Frank Lloyd Wright once desribed this Hyde Park home "a cornerstone of modern architecture," and it still lives up to the self-imposed reputation. Though it fell into disrepair and was slated for demolition on more than one occasion, it’s now in the midst of an extensive restoration. One of the last buildings conceived in Wright’s Oak Park studio, it’s considered a prime example of the Prairie style the cornerstone of modern architecture. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust's guided tour will take you inside the classic structure, where you can admire the original art glass accents, restored furniture and a fireplace that divides the home's living and dining areas.
