2018 Winter Restoration Update

January 15, 2018

Annual maintenance is taking place at the Martin House from January 16 – 24.

During that time the site is closed for tours. Tours will resume on January 25.

Martin House Restoration:

The restoration of the second floor of the Martin House is wrapping up and we look forward to showing the Martin’s master bedroom as part of the Martin House + (two-hour) Tour. Visitors will see the beautiful mahogany wood trim, an extensive collection of built-in furniture designed by Wright, and experience another view into the Martin's life.

Barton House and Grounds:

The Barton House restoration is still underway, with an expected reopening to occur early summer of 2018. We are so excited to see the Barton House like never before and share it with our visitors as part of the two-hour tour, and as a rental facility. As soon as the weather clears after the winter season, we will break ground on our historic landscape rehabilitation. Look for more details on the landscape as that date nears.

Thank you for being patient with our improvements!

Stay tuned for an announcement as to when the second floor will be available on the two-hour tour.

We cannot wait to show off the beautiful artisanship that makes this house so special.
