Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959): In 1950 Mary and Bill Palmer, a young faculty couple, convinced the then 83-year old FLW to design the house at 227 Orchard Hills simply by asking. The Palmers stayed true to the original design, consulting Wright, or people trained under him after he died, before making any changes. Now a guest house, it served as the Palmer’s family home their whole married life.
