In early 1900s, Frank Lloyd Wright designed economic houses by taking home-making to a warehouse instead on the site. The design was considered to be aesthetic, easy, friendly on the wallet and simply a revolutionary idea for years to come!
Today, the same houses are a part of Milwaukee’s neighborhood and special tours take you through the doors to see the design of the houses up close. If you love architecture, don’t miss out on the tour!

American System-built Homes Reviews & Ratings
Great tour, only 5 people in our group. I was amazed at the attention to the minor small details. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
I enjoyed the tour greatly, but I think any Wright enthusiast would. My suggestion however is to book less people however on each tour. I realize people may have to book out in advance, but I would have preferred this than to have been crowded into a lump of 20 others - I drove a long way, and it was very difficult to get pictures of the rooms / structures without the other tour guests being in the photo. I waited until the tour progressed to get a photo, and it was obvious I was annoying the tour guide that I was not keeping up. The tour guides need to give people a chance to take a photo once the room clears. We do not all get to see this every day, and some may never get a chance to come again.
Amazing place, so much to see.
It's always nice to find someone to travel with you that likes the same things you like. That way you are not defensive and trying to explain why you're enamored with a man whose personal life and design philosophy could be at odds. The tour that I took was just of the school, theater and out buildings and did not include the main house. The directions to Spring Green, Wisconsin were a little convoluted; but that's part of the travel experience.
He is an American Icon who is not a pop star. To view where he worked and lived was an enjoyable experience. It will take a couple of hours to tour the home.
