The Laurent House Foundation is offering a special twilight tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Laurent House on Sept. 19.
The tour will begin at 5:45 p.m. at the Midway Village Museum at 6799 Guilford Road in Rockford where guests will then be taken by shuttle to the house. Guests will be served appetizers and refreshments on the grounds before the two-hour tour begins.
The president of the Laurent House Foundation and local architects will present the detailed architectural tour of the home. Guests will be allowed to take photographs at the event.
The Laurent House is the only building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for a person with a disability. The home was built in 1951 for the Laurents, who lived there until 2012. The Laurent House Foundation now owns the home, and offers tours to thousands of guests from around the world. Wright considered the house one of his most important works.
