Fallingwater in April.

Fallingwater in Fayette County is among the Frank Lloyd Wright homes featured in a new “best of” list compiled by the home improvement website HomeAdvisor.

The famous Wright home, visited by thousands every year, appears on a list and a map that shows the geographic reach of Wright’s work and “celebrates the most significant domestic Wright projects in the 37 states where he left his mark.”

HomeAdvisor describes Fallingwater as “one of the most celebrated architectural works of all time” and “a masterpiece of harmony with its natural surroundings.”

“Wright’s Prairie and Usonian house designs changed the way we built our homes, and examples of his work can be seen in almost every state in the Union,” according to HomeAdvisor.

Other Wright homes featured on the map include the Westcott House (1904) in Springfield, Ohio, the Robert Llewellyn Wright House (1953) in Bethesda, Md., and the E.E. Boynton House (1908) in Rochester, N.Y.

The homes were selected from a list that originally included properties that have since been demolished, destroyed, damaged, renovated and restored, as well as those built since Wright’s death in 1959.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
