  2. 2.  Frank Lloyd Wright began designing the house in 1950 and it was completed in 1954. The Lewis family moved in and lived there until 2011.  This house is in Wrights Hemicycle design which means it is one of only a few that he designed with half circle shapes.  The Spring House is a perfect example of how Wright loved to incorporate buildings with nature.

  4. 4.  When the Lewis family moved out in 2011, the Spring House Institute was formed in order to teach others about the house and to help earn money to restore it.  The Spring House is an excellent site to learn about early architecture and the famous Frank Lloyd Wright. • The Spring House has so many unique features inside and outside the house. Each room shows off Wrights style and talent.
