Meyer May House, Grand Rapids, MI
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meyer May House is considered to be an exemplary example of the Prairie style. Built in 1908-1909, it features a hip roof with broad overhanging eaves, art glass windows in horizontal bands and pale brick that were common features of Wright’s houses. Wright designed nearly every aspect of the house, including the furniture, windows, light fixtures and rugs. The house underwent a major restoration in 1986. Nearly everything appears as it would have originally, including a mural of hollyhocks that had been covered by layers of paint for years. The house is open for (free!) tours.
