Many people don't know this, but there are six Frank Lloyd Wright homes nestled in the heart of Burnham Park. Heck, I didn't even know this until I researched this story. Wow! Wright built these as part of his American System-Built Homes. These were affordable, livable spaces and can be viewed by simply driving down Historic Layton Blvd. West, heading west on Burnham Street, and voila, Frankie is there!!! I toured one of these homes, and was amazed at how his architecture still remains fresh and current even today.
