Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House

One of the world's most famous architects left an indelible mark on Alabama with this stylish house, which is now a museum showcasing his signature organic style.

Experience the genius of one of America's finest architects at the Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House. The building, located in the center of Florence near the Tennessee River, is open to the public. Walk around to get an insight into why Wright is so respected. Not only is the tiered exterior typical of Wright’s work, but the interior is full of furniture created by the designer as well.

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867. Over the course of his life, he designed about 1,000 buildings. This particular building, known as the Rosenbaum House, was designed for a newlywed couple in 1939 and intended to be a low-cost home. See it now more than 70 years later, after the City of Florence purchased and renovated it to become a museum.

Walk around the outside of the building and examine the structure. Notice how the use of local materials and natural shapes makes the building appear to almost blend into the landscape. This particular building style is known as Usonian. Also of note is the tiered roof, which follows the contour of the land, so that it almost seems to emerge from the ground itself.

Step inside to explore the interior. Wright felt that furniture should harmonize with the architecture of a building. Look for Wright-designed chairs and tables, with lines and natural appearance that mirror the design of the exterior.

Wander through the living room, study and bedroom. All of these rooms are lined with tall windows, which let in natural light. The kitchen, guest bedroom and dormitory were added by Wright in 1948 after the family grew in size. Note how these rooms adhere to the same style as the original house.

Buy admission tickets at the gift shop across from the house. You’ll also find information points about Wright, the Rosenbaum family and the building itself here. Tours are operated hourly by knowledgeable guides.

Find the Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House in the southwestern part of Florence's city center. Parking is available next to the building. The house is open every day except Monday.
