Frank Lloyd Wright Tour
June 17, 2023
Please join us for a scenic back road journey through Massachusetts and New Hampshire to tour two homes designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Zimmerman Home was commissioned by Dr. Isadore Zimmerman and his wife Lucille in 1949. Frank Lloyd Wright designed the home, garden, and furnishings. The Zimmermans lived in the house for the remainder of their lives, and bequeathed it to the Currier Museum of Manchester NH. The house is preserved exactly as it was when the Zimmerman family lived there.
The Toufic H. Kalil House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1955 in the Usonian Automatic style. It was acquired by the Currier Museum in 2019, and is right down the street from the Zimmerman House.
We will marshal at the Market Basket in Westford MA just off I-495 at 9:00 for a 9:15 departure. The backroads journey will be about two hours – there will be one (optional) loo break about half way.
Our destination is the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire. There we will park our Miatas and enjoy brunch / refreshments in the Museum cafe, which opens at 11:00. At noon we will board a tour bus along with our guide to travel to the nearby Wright homes. After our visit, the bus will return us to the Currier Museum. Your Frank Lloyd Wright tickets also provide full access to the Currier Museum – you are free to explore the galleries as long as you wish, and then make your own way home. The return trip is about 30 minutes via US 3 or I-93 to I-495 in Massachusetts.
Admission to the Tour is $32 per person for the group rate. Payment should be sent as soon as you sign up to secure your spot.
