Event description

Description

TOURS AVAILABLE ON THE 3rd SATURDAY OF THE MONTH FROM MAY THROUGH OCTOBER, EXCLUDING AUGUST.

AUGUST TOURS WILL BE ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 2017.

The first Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house to be built in the Detroit metropolitan area, the Gregor S. & Elizabeth B. Affleck House represents one of the finest examples of the architect’s Usonian style, the last great period of Wright’s career. Designed to exist in harmony with the home’s site and nature, the Affleck House was a part of Wright’s attempt to meet the need for low-cost housing for the average American.

Adult ticket cost is $25.00. Child and Student ticket cost is $15.00. Ticket sales will end 3 days prior to the tour date. Regular tours are offered at 11 AM, 12 PM and 1 PM. Click the 'Select A Date' button above to reserve tickets for one of these time slots.

Beginning this season, the 2 PM tour will be an extended version of our regular tour, geared toward Frank Lloyd Wright aficionados or those with a background in architecture, although anyone is welcome to join. Click here for further details:

Due to the historical status and intimate nature of the house, many rooms and passageways are very narrow and therefore the house is not wheelchair accessible. Limited photography, for personal use only, is permitted. In consideration of our other guests, we ask that you use handheld cameras only. Tripods and flash photography are prohibited.

Please note: Low-heeled, comfortable shoes are recommended. This tour will involve walking and can include both paved and unpaved terrain. The event will be offered rain or shine, please dress for the weather.

Group Tours are available for groups of 12 or larger. Please contact Tami Stanko, Administrative Assistant, College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University for further information: tstanko@ltu.edu; 248.204.2800.
