An American System-Built Home Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright


Throughout his career, Wright believed that all people, regardless of income, deserved to live in beautiful, architect-designed homes. Wright's earliest solution to this "small house problem" was American System-Built Homes, and in 1916, six of these dwellings were built on Burnham Street in Milwaukee. Tour an 805 sq. ft. bungalow, totally restored in 2009 by Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin. Hear the story of Wright, ASBH and the restoration. Walk the block to view the other dwellings, and perhaps visit one of the duplexes currently undergoing restoration.

The house is not wheelchair accessible.
Dates and locations to be announced.
Fee: $10
