Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen House, Wichita

4.6
#6 of 15 in Museums in Wichita
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.

  • Very interesting place to visit and the staff here are amazing. We actually clean the home as a subcontractor for another company located here in Wichita and have seen about every inch of this building every week for well over a year now and I'm still intrigued by the history and craftsmanship. When we did the initial walkthrough we got a small piece of the history of the home. Ironically enough I've considered attending a guided/ private tour.
  • One of Wichita's treasures. It's now a museum and is being restored to its former glory. Tours are infrequent, but worth going to if you manage to get in. This is Wright's very last prairie-style house.
