“Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1915!”

The Frank Lloyd Wright Allen House, also known as the Henry J. Allen House and the Allen–Lambe House, is a Prairie Style house in Wichita, Kansas, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1915 for former Kansas Governor Henry Justin Allen and his wife Elsie. It is currently run by the Allen–Lambe House Foundation as a museum under the stewardship of the Wichita Center for the Arts. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was one of Frank Lloyd Wright's last Prairie Houses. The design influence of the prairie, and Japanese architecture (Wright was working on the Imperial Hotel in Japan at the time) is apparent on both the interior and exterior. Also included in the forward thinking house were modern conveniences such as a central vacuuming unit, an alarm system and gas fireplace logs. Another innovation of the Frank Lloyd Wright Allen House was the first fire wall in a residential home. The bricks contain iron, giving it a rust color.

If your a fan of American architecture this is a must see. Last of FLW prairie houses. The attention to detail is exceptional. The harmony of the spaces and the decor, furnishings is unbelievable. The guided tour was very informative and called out many of the details and history of the home. Incredible that 90% of the furnishings in this almost 100 year old house are original.
