Update--tour is full! Thank you to everyone who registered. You will receive an email confirmation with directions to the house.

Join the Latrobe Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians on a tour of one of the few Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residences in the Washington, D.C. region. Designed in 1953 for his son, Robert Llewellyn Wright, the house is perched above Cabin John Creek in Bethesda, Maryland.

The house, now owned by Wright’s grandson, evokes the hallmarks of the Usonian style developed by Wright in the 1930s: low cost, communion with nature, and honesty in building materials.

The tour will be led by Clare Lise Kelly, architectural historian with the M-NCPPC Montgomery County Planning Department and author of Montgomery Modern: Modern Architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland 1930-1979. Ms. Kelly presented an overview of her book to the Latrobe Chapter in February.

The tour will begin promptly at 3:00 PM and last approximately one hour. Meet at 7927 Deepwell Drive, Bethesda, Maryland.  See attached flyer for registration information. Register early; attendance is limited!
