Crystal Bridges Museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright House Set to Open in November

The Frank Lloyd Wright house acquired by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art will be making its public debut on November 11. Originally built in 1954, the house was disassembled, transported 1,200 miles across the nation, and reconstructed at the museum’s site.

Known as the Bachman-Wilson House, Wright’s design occupied a spot along the Millstone River in New Jersey, where it was threatened by repeated flooding. Crystal Bridges acquired the house in 2013.

“As the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Arkansas, it enhances our region’s offerings with unique engagement opportunities for schools, families, and individuals with an interest in architecture, all at no cost to the public,” said Crystal Bridges executive director Rod Bigelow.
