About this event

TOURS AVAILABLE ON THE 3rd SATURDAY OF THE MONTH IN MAY, JUNE AND JULY.

PLEASE SEE FAQ SECTION FOR COVID-19 DETAILS.

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.

Ticket cost is $40.00. Regular tours are offered at 10AM, 11 AM, 12 PM 1 PM and 2 PM. Click the 'Select A Date' button above to reserve tickets for one of these time slots. Ticket sales will end two days prior to the tour date.

Affleck House Deeper Dive Tour

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 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.
