Yes, a visit to this house is a must. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s work has been loved, admired, and studied the world over. And of the 500+ buildings he completed within his lifetime, the Hollyhock House is one of the earliest examples of his work. Built in 1923 for Aline Barnsdall, it was soon given to the city in 1927. Visitors can purchase tickets at the Municipal Art Gallery to tour the heritage home, now located within Barnsdall Park, of the man the American Institute of Architects refers to as “the greatest American architect of all time”.
