“A Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece”

The Arthur L Richards Small House is an American System Built Home adjacent to the Arthur L Richards Duplex Apartments.  The house is a single story, and of relative small size compared to the majority of Wright's work. The house contains a living room, kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms, dining nook, and a slightly elevated basement. The house still contains a fireplace near the center of the house, a signature Frank Lloyd Wright mark. More drawings were made for the American System Built project by Frank Lloyd Wright than for any other of his designs, however, the concept of these precut structures was a relative failure despite the fact that designing low cost affordable housing was a lifelong strive for Wright. Only seventeen American System Built Houses were built. Four of these houses were a row of duplex apartments similar to the ones seen next to this house, known as the Arthur R Munkwitz Duplex Apartments, though they were demolished in 1973. Located at 2714 West Burnham, Milwaukee, WI. The home is open for tours the 2nd Saturday and 4th Saturday of each month. Reservations are not necessary.  Adults $10 per person  Students $5 with ID Children under 16 are free (with parents)
