Built between 1903 and 1905, Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House is a masterpiece from the architect's early career. The Martin family commissioned the house and developed a long-standing friendship with Wright, even offering financial support as his career began to take off. Designed during Wright's Prairie School era, the six-structure complex includes the main house, a house built for Martin's sister and her husband, a pergola, a conservatory, a stable, and a gardener's cottage. The house is in the Parkside East Historic District. Reservations are recommended for the variety of tours available.

What an amazing place! A complex of buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Darwin Martin and his family, each demonstrating a particular version of Wright's early genius. A gardener's cottage, a beloved family member's home and the wonderful Martin house, all letting us into Wright's fascinating mind, but also allowing us to witness life 115 years ago. My daughter and I have been promising each other to go to this place for a couple of years, and today we made it happen. The docent, Richard B., is a great raconteur and obviously knows his material well; he also shows a great affection for the house and grounds. Anyone who is a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, or early 20th century architecture, or just wants to explore this beautiful home, needs to come and experience it! A wonderful gem in the Queen city's crown!!
It was a really fun tour! I went on the hour long one but there a two hour tour that features more of the house. The tour guide is very informative. Unfortunately you can't take any pictures inside the house. But once you get in the conservatory pictures are allowed and that building is just as cool. Highly recommend.
