The Landmark Society of Western New York, in cooperation with the homeowners and Bero Architecture PLLC, is hosting a very special event: a tour of the privately owned Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Boynton House in Rochester NY! This one-hour guided tour will bring guests into one of Wright’s most iconic designs. Those interested in the tour will be able to enter a lottery to purchase tickets. The window to enter on the Landmark Society website (www.landmarksociety.org) opens on July 13 and will close on July 20. Winners will be notified and they will be able to purchase up to two $50 tickets.
The only home in Rochester designed by America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright is an unusually fine example of what Wright called his Prairie Style, innovative designs of his early years that influenced twentieth century architecture. Edward Boynton, a Rochester businessman, commissioned the house on East Boulevard in 1908 as a residence for himself and his daughter Beulah, hence the home is often referred to as the Boynton House. The Landmark Society of Western New York owns the dining room furniture and has historically partnered with owners to keep the furniture in its original setting.
