2022 is quickly coming to a close, so we gratefully ask that you might consider the Allen House in your year-end giving.  We are proud of the many restoration and enhancement projects completed this year, focusing on the restored living room doors, tuck-pointing throughout the home and the interior garden house plaster repaired and scrumbling reapplied. Our mission continues to focus on the restoration and conservation of the house and gardens in order to adapt the use as a house museum. Thanks to the generous support of donors, we can offer visitors an educational opportunity to experience Wright’s philosophy of organic architecture and living in harmony with nature. In 2022 so far, we have attracted visitors from 29 states and 24 different countries. As we look to 2023, we will continue renovations to the quarry tile surfaces, restoring the half-bath off the back stairs, and continuing the tuck-pointing throughout the home and exterior walls. We couldn’t do this without you. With your support we can enhance and share this cultural destination for generations to come. Please consider supporting Allen House restoration efforts with a year-end gift. Donations of $125 or greater will receive a complimentary copy of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Allen House in Wichita. Gifts to the annual fund are unrestricted and tax-deductible. Gifts can be made online at www.flwrightwichita.org or by mailing a check to our address. The Allen House is considered “the house of choice to live in” by our guests – and Wright considered it “among my best.” Thank you for your continued support of the Frank Lloyd Wright Allen House!
