Tour leader was great; very personable and knowledgeable. So nice that this tour continues to be offered. I think the ONLY FLW farmhouse(!) and right here in Kane County, IL.

It was a very comprehensive and interesting tour. I especially enjoyed all the details that the leader gave us, from the house beginning to now. Since the house has been in the same family for all the years, he told us a lot that just an ordinary docent wouldn't have known. The family relationship to Frank Lloyd Wright was interesting, too. The grounds are beautiful.
