Frank Lloyd Wright Smith House Tour

FB
Known affectionately as Frank Lloyd Wright’s little gem, the Smith House is a unique piece of architecture and a testament to the middle class. Melvyn Maxwell Smith and Sara Stein Smith were both making teachers’ salaries when they met Wright in 1941, and over a shared passion for architecture, commissioned him to build them a new home. The tour takes guests through the L-shaped home and tells them the story of the Smiths, who, in spite of a lack of wealth, worked to create a home that would mean something to them. Also, the home is just plain cool to see. Tours are every third Saturday and fourth Sunday. Tours start at 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4:30 p.m.; 39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills; cranbrookartmuseum.org; tickets are $35.
