The Frank Lloyd Wright House Lawn

The long swath of green lawn leading up to the stunning architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright makes an excellent setting for an intimate gathering. Set off from the South Lawn by a line of trees and native plantings, and flanked on one side by a stacked-stone wall and the Ozark forest, this space has a private feel perfect for a lawn ceremony or reception. Please note: the Bachman-Wilson House is not available for rental, and is not opened for private events.
