Mrs. Rielly's Wright Postcards

  1. 1. Massaro House Petre Island, New York
  2. 2. Dear Mom and Dad, I had a great time visiting the Massaro house,which is in Petre Island, NY. Doesn’t it look like a boat? Frank L. Wright designed the house, died, but when all hope was lost for the house a man named Joe Massaro found the original blueprints and hired someone to build it. How remarkable! Even though Wright didn’t build the house it was still “ Wright like. “ They used rocks from around the island to make the house. They even made a couch out of rocks! I love you, Brian
  3. 4. Dear Mom and Dad, I had so much fun visiting the Dana-Thomas House. It has some amazing ideas like a two stories dinning room! This Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece was not originally made by Frank Lloyd. It was massively reconstructed in 1902. The Lawrence family commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to make this Springfield mansion framed in history! This house is a true Frank Lloyd Wright house. It has art glass but not as modern. I know you would like it so here is the website for tour information. Your son, Carson 01 E Lawrence Ave, Springfield, IL

There is a master bedroom wing, a guest/garage wing, a children wing, and a kitchen wing. From an aerial view wingspread looks like a giant pinwheel. The center of Wingspread is a living space. In this room there is a 30 foot chimney. This house is famous because Frank Lloyd Wright built it. He did a great job! Meggie

  20. 21. 353 W Hill St., Spring Green, WI
  21. 22. Dear Mom and Dad, Taliesin was built by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was built in Spring Green, Wisconsin. This house was built for Frank Lloyd Wright so he can work on his architecture. Taliesin was completed in 1911. Taliesin had multipurposes; it was his house and his studio in one. “Taliesin” means low brow in Welsh because it was built low to the ground. The coolest unique feature of Taliesin is that there is a theatre in his house. He would entertain the neighbors in his theatre. You can go now and take a tour of Taliesin. Bye, Ryan 353 W Hill St., Spring Green, WI
