Create an itinerary including Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen House
Commissioned in 1916 and completed in 1918, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Allen House is named after its first owners, newspaper publisher Henry Allen and his wife, Elsie. It was the last of the architect’s famous brick prairie houses, which emphasized horizontal lines, earth tones and a continuous blending of interiors with exteriors.



Architectural writers who have visited the house believe its living room is “one of the great rooms of the 20th century.” The home features more than 30 pieces of Wright-designed furniture, all of its original art glass and several new-for-their-time innovations, such as wall-hung water closets and an attached garage. Visit the site that USA Today considers one of the “10 great Frank Lloyd Wright home tours” in the nation.



This beautiful home has been preserved as a museum thanks to the Allen House Foundation.

  • We booked a private tour because the timing of the group tours didn’t work for us, and the employees were happy to accommodate. Excellent 90-minute tour of the house (both floors) and the outside...

  • Incredible tour. Our guide was amazing and had a wealth of knowledge, along with a real passion for Frank Lloyd Wright’s work. The house is incredibly well-preserved, and among the finest FLW homes....  more

  • I enjoyed touring this house more than I expected. I liked our tour guide, Jan, as she kept things interesting. It is definitely worth the visit. We didn’t do the garden house part of the tour but I didn’t feel like I missed too much. We had our 14 year old with us and not sure she would have enjoyed the longer tour.
  • I did not see the interior because I arrived too late to town. However my home town has a couple Frank Lloyd Wright houses in my neighborhood. I try to get around and see as many as I can. I find his architecture fascinating. I found this one very interesting as well. I really like the garage in the back along with the overhangs.
