Circle April 7 on your calendar for a chance to learn more about Frank Lloyd Wright’s connections to St. Louis. Did you know that “Sixty years before the construction of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park (The Kraus House), Wright assisted Louis Sullivan in designing such iconic 1890s skyscrapers as the Wainwright Building and Union Trust in downtown St. Louis.”

That information comes from the press release announcing the annual Frank Lloyd Wright House lecture. Tim Samuelson, who is the cultural historian for Chicago and an expert on Midwestern architecture, will give the address at 3 p.m. in the Lee Auditorium of the Missouri History Museum.

The event is free.

Information about The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park can be found atwww.ebsworthpark.org. Tours are by appointment by calling 314-822-8359.
