ABOUT THE MARTIN HOUSE
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House, designed and built from 1903-05, is considered by Wright scholars to be a significant turning point in the evolution of Wright’s Prairie house concept. The original estate consisted of the main Martin House, pergola, conservatory and carriage house, the Barton House, and a gardener’s cottage, totaling nearly 32,000 square feet. Wright called the Martin House his “opus” and had its plans tacked above his drafting board for decades. Reconstruction of the pergola, conservatory, and carriage house was completed in early 2007 in the most ambitious restoration of demolished Wright buildings to date. The historic Martin House site offers public tours, school programs, community events, event rentals, and a retail store. More information about this National Historic Landmark can be found at www.martinhouse.org.
