I was greeted by the actual owner of this FLW house. He lives in the house with his family and he gives tours. It was amazing to hear from the first hand about all issues this house has but also see how it works for the family for 3 generations! Very nice house and unusual location on the farm. You can't see it from the road. You have to get on the private property to see this house and admire it.

As I said when we were there, it is so nice of you to open the house up for tours. You explained all the changes that have been done over the years & were wonderful about answering every question. With the amount of work that must be required to accommodate visitors, I felt guilty that there were only 2 of us there that day. Thank you once again.

Loved the tour. The tour guide was GREAT. He not only told us about features of the house but also stories of the family as they related to the house.
