List of ‘best’ Frank Lloyd Wright homes in 37 states includes Fallingwater
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.
