Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen House

Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen House Prairie style house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1920 for Henry J. and Elsie Allen. Last of the Prairie houses and considered "among my best".
(58)

Commissioned in 1916 and completed in 1918, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Allen House is named after its first owners, newspaper publisher Henry Allen and his wife, Elsie. It was the last of the architect’s famous brick prairie houses, which emphasized horizontal lines, earth tones and a continuous blending of interiors with exteriors. Architectural writers who have visited the house believe its living room is “one of the great rooms of the 20th century.” The home features more than 30 pieces of Wright-designed furniture, all of its original art glass and several new-for-their-time innovations, such as wall-hung water closets and an attached garage. Visit the site that USA Today considers one of the “10 great Frank Lloyd Wright home tours” in the nation. This beautiful home has been preserved as a museum thanks to the Allen House Foundation.

Frank Lloyd Wright sought not just to mold the architectural legacy of the US but to change the very way Americans lived their lives. And he succeeded: even if you’re not one of the few who are fortunate enough to call a Wright residence home, the influence of his staggeringly long and wide-rangin...

Did you know Frank Lloyd Wright designed a float for the Rose Bowl Parade? In 1956, Wright was commissioned to create an Arizona-inspired float by the Phoenix Junior Chamber of Commerce. His eye-catching “Valley of the Sun” float was inspired by the Arizona sunshine, and was awarded first place in its category.
