Don't miss this tour. The tour starts with a very informative video. The tour guide was excellent, very thoughtful and well-informed. The home illustrated many of Wright's philosophies in a home of that vintage.

The docent and other volunteers are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Also, the gift shop has really good deals! But the star is the Stockman House itself. Another example of FLW innovation and attention to detail.

Nice example of a Wright Usonian. This house was touted as a fire-proof home for $5,000 in Ladies Home Journal. Not the original site but actually one that Wright would have appreciated. Check out the center next door, the neighborhood across State St, and pf...More

Thank you for your recent visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Stockman House in Mason City, IA. Even though Mr. Wright designed several Usonian houses, this house is actually an example of his Prairie Style. Usonian houses came after his Prairie style. The Stockman House is...More
