The Darwin D Martin Complex was designed and executed by the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright between 1903 and 1905. The home of businessman Darwin Martin and his wife, the complex is said to be one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most spectacular work. A fine example of the Prairie school of design, the complex includes two houses, a conservatory, a carriage horse stable, a gardener’s cottage and a long greenhouse. The genius of Frank Wright is visible in the astounding design and engineering of the house. An elaborate restoration has made sure that the house has got back its former glory.

  • Absolutely amazing architecture! And so much history in this property! The tour was great, however, we only did the one hour tour so we didn't get to see the second floor- be sure to do the 2 hour tour. Only complaint is that pictures aren't allowed in the house.

  • Full disclosure: I live around the corner and have watched the restoration and its previous state for 37 years. It's a beautiful building, and the restoration is spectacular. The volunteer docents very effectively explain Wright's architecture and his relationship with the Martins. Nearly all questions answered well. I haven't seen the recently restored fireplace--I'll rectify that soon. The adjacent Greatbach Pavilion is tasteful and respectful of the Wright building and contains a useful introduction. Anyone interested in architecture or in learning the kind of thought and art and personal relations that goes into an architectural project won't be disappointed.

  • I am so impressed with the Darwin Martin's house staff. They have been incredibly helpful in arranging a French language tour for my in-laws visit to Buffalo. Sue,my contact at the Darwin Martin house, arranged a translator for us and kept in close communication as we got the details worked out. What an amazing experience. She is a brilliant ambassador to this awesome architectural gem. We are very excited to take the tour (in French!).

  • Absolutely love this place. The restoration work is amazing. I love going to events and lectures there.

  • My friend and I booked a two hour tour, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for the whole two hours at the site. It is a wonderful representation and restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright's work.
