Frank Lloyd Wright Mäntylä House

After a Thousand-Mile Journey, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Mäntylä Opens to Overnight Guests2 of 6

According to Tom Papinchak, president of Usonian Preservation, the restoration was the most difficult part of relocating Frank Lloyd Wright's Mäntylä. "The family raised several children in house, so there was wear and tear," says Papinchak. "We questioned whether we restore it to its original, pristine state. There is a fine line there." Ultimately, they did restore 40 linear feet of cypress.
