Date: April 7, 2017

In keeping with his vision of creating architect-designed homes for all Americans, Frank Lloyd Wright began designing small houses for moderate- to low-income workers in 1911. Six of these modest homes, known as American System-Built houses, were constructed on West Burnham Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As years passed, the homes fell into disrepair, and their significance was almost forgotten.
 
Mike Lilek, Curator, Burnham Block, will speak about the current restoration process that is bringing back the original luster and charm of these tiny houses.
 
The lecture is free, but tickets are required. Advance tickets are available in person at the Museum’s Information Centers, through Metrotix.com (service charge applies) or by calling 314-534-1111. Same-day tickets, if available, can be obtained on site only.
